Sipper

New Sipper single “Ghost” promises more indie soft jams on forthcoming EP

Sipper’s debut Adam Driver EP came out earlier this year and properly introduced us to Joe Beerman’s hushed, almost secretive songwriting and spare indie rock, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting in new single before we wrap 2019. Opting for a more acoustic, room filling sound, recently unveiled track “Ghost” carries much of the same easy listenability of the project’s previous release; Beerman is still cranking out catchy hooks coupled with minimalistic instrumentation while exploring different, increasingly psyche-tinged instrumentation. Better yet, as the first single off the band’s next, as-of-yet unnamed EP (out next year), it builds appropriate hype for those of us clamoring for more Sipper music (present company very much included); listen to it below. —Connor Beckett McInerney

   

Sipper's "OMG" is a bitter secret; "Sipper" EP out today

Sipper’s Joe Beerman is, as the lyrics of his new track suggests, a modern man - his voice has the breathy quality of Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam with the wandering, occasionally growl adjacent vocal delivery of Stephen Malkmus. Channeled simultaneously over stumbling, guitar driven indie, these elements give his new single “OMG” the quality of a hushed secret you weren’t supposed to hear; the song is dripping with an intimacy that’s as authentic as it is explosive. As its accompanying visual suggests, it’s the perfect soundtrack to a party you don’t want to be at, a fun indie romp wrapped up in malaise. Watch the video premiere below, and be sure to catch Sipper’s debut EP, out today (April 10th) on Invertebrate. - Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)
