We are excited to premiere ‘Mid-Thought,’ the latest song to be taken off the debut LP from Bellingham, WA quartet LipStitch. ’Who’s Left and Who’s Leaving’ will be out September 4th via Rocket Heart Records.
Vocalist/rhythm guitarist Amanda Hodgins about ‘Mid-Thought’:
“Trying to navigate conflict can be frustrating. When you're in the midst of it, you might get tongue-tied and not know what to say. It happens to the best of us - you lose words , you get flustered, and you just want to run away. This song was written just after one of those times.”
Drawing inspiration from Pacific Northwest Riot Grrrl, 80’s punk-edged hard rock, and 70’s NYC pre-punk glam, Amanda Hodgins, Chris Williams, Danielle LeBeau, and Bryan Hunter charge fearlessly into the land of big amps and bigger hooks.
Propelled by nothing more than word of mouth and a December 2018 two-track demo, LipStitch has already opened for Death Cab for Cutie, Odesza, The Coathangers, and Dude York. With the help of Seattle underground staple Rocket Heart Records, they’re ready to present their debut studio full length to the world.
At the heart of this project is four friends who enjoy each other’s company and are nostalgic for simple, earnest songs. “Living in this world the last few years has been discouraging for a lot of people.” says Hodgins “The world is burning around us. Everything feels urgent. Sorting out those feelings - but finding friendship and hope anyway - is what this record, and this group, is about.”
