28 Jan The Dip Release New Single “Advertising”
Seattle septet The Dip have released their new single “Advertising” off their upcoming album ‘The Dip Delivers’, out February 8th. The song is about the frustration for music, fashion, and culture that is recognized outside of artistic merits. Featuring a fast-paced symphony of electric guitar, drums, horns and raspy vocals by frontman Tom Eddy (Beat Connection), the song hits on the sad reality that advertising is what gains traction while exploring the inescapable power of capitalism.
With help from Seattle soul compatriots Delvon Lamarr and Jimmy James, the song burns through lively organ and guitar solos from the members of the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio as Eddy repeats the chorus, “You can turn anything into a thing, baby.” The high energy song finishes with an empty strum of the guitar, Eddy’s voice ringing into the abyss: “I wish I had a million dollars to spend.”
