Chew Lips

The flea market proves to be the perfect spot for our filming session with the dance-pop duo Chew Lips. “Going to the flea market, that’s what we always do when we have a weekend off in London”, singer Tigs explains smilingly and immediately swarms out to try on shoes, provide everyone with snacks and fall in love with a little bronze owl statue. As the temperature in Hamburg is autumn-like chilly and Tigs is still lightly dressed with last night’s stage outfit we navigate towards the indoor market and end up in the charming bicycle shop Classic Cycles. James sets up laptop and keyboard on the counter while Tigs is making owl sounds to the background music. After this short warm-up Chew Lips go for their new single “Hurricane”. May it be on the big stage or in the small corridor between a lot of bicycles, Tigs always fills the room with her mesmeric whirlwind presence. To James’ cool dico beats Tigs thus sings: “There is nothing that can keep me away, ’cause I’m your hurricane.” No doubt about it!
