As far as catchy goes, “Do You Chew” has a damn good hook (talk about ridiculously addictive vocals) with the right amount of pop gleen to make a real impact. If you’re not familiar, Chew Lips is vocalist and über-cool front-woman Tigs and multi-instrumentalist James Watkins. They’ve only been around since 2009 and are currently putting the finishing touches on their second, as-yet-untitled album, which will be released later this year.
If the response to Chew Lips thus far is any indication of what’s in store when their album does drop, I imaging the two are pretty gitty with anticipation at the moment.
Look for “Do You Chew?” to be released on June 11 through the band’s own label Family Records.
