A few weeks after the official release of the album ‘MASQUERADE’, Swiss alternative-rock/post-punk/industrial duo Grey Lipsshared an animated video illustrating the song “Constrained” (from the album) and available right now on YouTube.
For reminder, Grey Lips is a duo composed Perrine Berger (Adieu Gary Cooper, Perrine 3000…) & Matthieu Hardouin (Zatokrev, Impure Wilhelmina, Fallan, Hateful Monday, Orchestre tout puissant Marcel Duchamps…), playing some kind of intense cold-punk-wave.
Grey Lips was born in Geneva, Switzerland. The city of peace treaties, of communication between peoples, of big international instances. Geneva is also a city of bankers, commodity traders and tax exiles.
There is an alternative life in Geneva that finds its way between dirty money, corrupted ideals, and the habits of the western world’s comfort. Grey Lips creates his songs like puzzle pieces, to make sense of the chaos, pain and misunderstandings, which are part of the daily life of more and more of the privileged of this world.
The music of Grey Lips is oriented towards reverberation, incantatory accusations and Phrygian scales.
