Biography

Swiss Lips are a five-piece band from Manchester in the U.K. that came into being in 2011, playing an eclectic style reminiscent of the booming and scene. They’re perhaps best known for their catchy debut single “U Got the Power”, which has become an underground musical sensation. Previously known as “Ten Bears”, they’ve described themselves on Facebook as being “pop sorcerers, going straight to hell,”

Band members describe their sound as heavily influenced by the Manchester music scene. “Finding the middle ground between guitar music and dance music has been something Manchester has always been good at, and we hope to carry on that tradition.” They draw inspiration from a wide ranging array of artists: “…we take influences from all kinds of music. At the moment we are listening to Prince, Sebastian, Def Leppard, The Weeknd, The Beach Boys, Joe Goddard.”

Swiss Lips signed a four album deal with Epic Sony at the end of 2011. As a new band they were asked how it felt to be signed to a major record label, the band were able to point out that while Swiss Lips are a new band, they themselves are not novices to the music industry. “We are a new band but have all been playing in different bands for as long as we can remember so it doesn’t seem like an overnight thing. It’s feels amazing to have the support and belief of a team like Epic behind what we are doing and being Michael Jackson’s label mates is something to brag to girls about.”
