A few weeks after the official release of the album “MASQUERADE“, Swiss alternative-rock / post-punk/ industrial duo Grey Lips shared an animated video illustrating the song ‘Constrained’.
Grey Lips is a duo composed of Perrine Berger (Adieu Gary Cooper, Perrine 3000) and Matthieu Hardouin (Zatokrev, Impure Wilhelmina, Fallan, Hateful Monday, Orchestre tout puissant Marcel Duchamps), playing some kind of intense cold-punk-wave.
The band was born in Geneva, Switzerland. The city of peace treaties, of communication between peoples, of big international instances. Geneva is also a city of bankers, commodity traders, and tax exiles.
There is an alternative life in Geneva that finds its way between dirty money, corrupted ideals, and the habits of the western world’s comfort. Grey Lips creates his songs like puzzle pieces, to make sense of the chaos, pain, and misunderstandings, which are part of the daily life of more and more of the privileged of this world. The music of the Swiss band is oriented towards reverberation, incantatory accusations, and Phrygian scales.
