Listen: New York’s Lip Critic Share New Single ‘In the Wawa (Convinced I Am God)’

New York’s Lip Critic are back with their new release ‘In the Wawa (Convinced I Am God)’.

Praised to heaven and back by the likes of NME and Rolling Stone as NYC’s hottest new band, all the signs are pointing towards Lip Critic having an immensely successful year. Alongside a plethora of UK headline dates including an appearance at End of the Road Festival, the band are soon to bless our ears with their debut album ‘Hex Dealer’ on May 17th courtesy of Partisan Records.

Named after a gas station chain in the US, ‘In the Wawa’ is yet another example of the band’s quintessential postmodern and genre defying sound. Banshee-possessed samples blend luxuriously into percussion beats provided by not one, but two drummers. The track is perhaps best likened to that of the electronic punk genre, although a live performance of ‘In the Wawa’ is sure to welcome all headbanging hardcore and punk lovers. 

Lyrically touching, ‘In the Wawa’ navigates the paradoxical dynamic of spiritualism in a modern consumerist society. Vocalist Bret Kaser clamors into the microphone: ‘Convinced I’m a god/ So I’m gonna get any sandwich I want’. Accompanied by the band’s most enticing music video yet, the band reiterate the song’s political message as they attempt to raid their music label’s office in an attempt to reclaim the music as their own.
