Sadly, citing the fact that being in a small band in the current musical climate had become a "drag", they decided to move on. It's odd to write about a band who no longer exist while their brand new album has only been available for a fortnight, but that's the way the cookie's crumbled. Being from Manchester, Swiss Lips always wanted to carry on the city's tradition of mixing guitar music with dance and electronic sounds, and album cut 'Got It Bad' does just that. Synth-heavy with a beat that's suited to the clubs as well as the indie disco, they nail on a big chorus that shows just why they featured in the mainstream as well as the alternative press. This track is a blend of all the groups they've been compared to, and it also has the ingredients to be a big hit. Maybe the delays and legal wrangles have cost them that, but if you want some euphoric indie-synth-pop to get you in the mood for the weekend, then look no further. It's sad to see a band with such potential calling it a day.
