About Rips

The Brooklyn-based band Rips are students of the music made in New York during the '70s and their dual-guitar attack and twisting melodies call to mind great bands like Television and the Feelies. Formed in 2013, the publicity shy quartet built a following in the city by playing a ton of shows, both as headliners and as openers for similar sounding bands like Sauna Youth, Terry Malts, and Parquet Courts. That group's Austin Brown produced the first Rips album with a no-frills style that highlighted their guitar interplay and post-punk energy. The self-titled record was released by the Brighton, U.K. record label Faux Discx in June of 2017. ~ Tim Sendra
