The sound of New York band Lip Critic is eccentric and original, to say the least. Think of styles like dance, punk, digital hardcore, hip hop and noise – crushed, destroyed and combined with improvisation. This spring, they released their debut album “Hex Dealer” (2024), which came out on the label Partisan (known from IDLES, Geese, Blondshell, Just Mustard and Fontaines D.C., among others). They will take this new album on a tour that also brings them to Nijmegen.

With two drummers (Daniel Eberle and Ilan Natter) and two samplers (Connor Kleitz and Brett Kaser, the latter of whom is frontman and singer), Lip Critic doesn’t really follow the default. The band is remarkable, original and effective. They got together in their student days, a period in which they found the magic formula to use electronic samples and a massive subwoofer instead of ‘real’ instruments.

“They often feel like three or four bands rolled into one. The fervid hardcore trashers, the hip-shaking dance heads, the sardonic post-punks – and beyond” – NME
