Black Lips The - Underneath the Rainbow 12inch
Out of Stock
Seven albums in for Black Lips, Underneath The Rainbow had the potential to fall completely flat. It’s been roughly three years since the last record from the Atlanta flower punks, the longest wait for fans since their inception. We could have heard the stale, aging partygoer incarnation of the band. Thankfully, we’re far from that.
It remains a certainty that the band is, essentially, the same one we fell in love with, though there are moments in Underneath The Rainbow that make you long for their days of fearlessly vomiting and playing with fireworks nude on stage. For example, on the country-tinged track Justice After All, there’s no real hook aside from vocalist Alexander Cole‘s cute cowboy accent on the final line of the chorus that sticks.
