Wine Lips, recently released a video for their current single “In the Clear.” The track is off the Toronto band’s forthcoming release Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party, available October 29th via Montreal label Stomp Records. The video, which was Directed by Ciarán Downes, filmed by Jamie Gagain and edited by Ciarán Downes & Taylor Lucas is a tongue in cheek look at overreactions and self-diagnosis. Singer Cam Hilborn describes the video by saying, “We wanted to play off a person’s reaction to some bad news but in a very over exaggerated way. The video follows a clown who has just been given news that he is an expecting father on a parody of the Maury Show. The result is the clown having a complete meltdown and going on a killing spree”.
Commenting on the message behind the new single, Hilborn says, “In the Clear tells a story a few can likely relate to of feeling like a hypochondriac. When self diagnosis becomes alarming after researching symptoms on the world wide web and the results are of course interpreted to imply that death is around the corner. Then you work up enough courage to see the doctor only to have them tell you that you’re fine and that there was nothing to be worried about in the first place.”
Wine Lips is Cam Hilborn on guitar and vocals with Aurora Evans on drums, Jordan Sosensky on guitar and Charlie Weare on bass. Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party is a collection of psych-rock bangers that’ll surely win the hearts of fans longing for their brand of garage-rock-revival that draws influence from the likes of The Hives, Bad Nerves, Dead Kenedys, Thee Oh Sees, Idles, Ty Segall, Buzzcocks and Parquet Courts. The band spent most of their free time in 2020 writing and recording their phenomenal third full length record at The Sugar Shack in London, Ontario with Simon Larochette.
“The record is crazy! We really spent a lot of time getting the songs to sound exactly the way we wanted. I think this is the best stuff we’ve recorded and I’m super stoked with the end result!” says Hilborn.
