NEW MUSIC: MAINE | LIPS + VIDEO PREMIERE
Pop-rockers The Maine have shared a new single called "Lips," which comes from the band’s forthcoming eighth album, "XOXO: From Love & Anxiety In Real Time." The band's first single, "Sticky," released in March, is currently at #23 on Billboard's Alternative Airplay chart and has been steadily climbing. "Lips" is another example of The Maine's ability to merge modern pop and rock in a song that is inventive and instantly memorable. Catchy, fun and engaging. The song's chorus is the hook that brings it home as lead singer John O'Callahan screams: "It's on your lips when you lie! You can't keep talkin' like this; lips do more than just kiss!"
The video for "Lips" touches on nostalgic imagery, with a performance framed inside of a '90s era television set. The Maine is known for its high-energy live performances, and the video captures that as each band member delivers on that well-earned reputation. Aside from their incredible music, The Maine is perhaps best known for harbouring a sense of community and giving their fans the authentic feeling of belonging. The Maine performed a free live-streamed concert via their YouTube channel earlier this year.
