Lip Critic sign to Partisan, share bruising new single “It’s the Magic,” touring with Screaming Females

NYC’s Lip Critic have announced they’ve signed with Partisan Records (IDLES, PJ Harvey, Fontaines DC) and have released their first single for the label. Produced by the band, “It’s the Magic” is bruising dance-rock, with one foot in hardcore and the other in nervy new wave. You can watch the video, directed by Aaron Fenichell, below.

Lip Critic start their fall tour with a hometown show tonight (10/24) at The Broadway with Stuy and Mothercell, followed by headline shows in Baltimore and Richmond, before hooking up with Screaming Females for a week’s worth of shows. They’ve also got UK/EU shows later in the fall including Pitchfork Paris. All dates are listed below.
