Lipstereo is a young, four-piece Australian indie rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 2019, this collection of music tragics bonded together over a mutual obsession with The Strokes, Weezer and Arctic Monkeys’ back catalogues.

By channelling too much time spent watching worn-out Ramones and Blondie VHS tapes as children, Lipstereo creates performances reminiscent of late nights at CBGB, and spilling drinks just a little too cheap on the floor.

Lipstereo is composed of frontman Sam Stranges on vocals and rhythm guitar, Andrew Stainsby on lead guitar, Tage Hosking-Gregory on bass and Jesse Porter on drums. Playing all over pre-lockdown Melbourne in 2019 and 2020 at their high-energy live gigs, Lipstereo fuses loud guitars with a post-punk songwriting sensibility to create music that in a parallel universe, would be on Phil Spector’s Spotify playlist.

Lipstereo is one of Melbourne’s most promising alternative bands, having recently released their four-track debut EP, Modern Mythology, at Thirty Mill Studios with top Australian record producer, Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel) and engineer Colin Wynne (INXS, Jeff Lang, The Casanovas).

The band has since received acclaim from Rolling Stone Australia, NME, ABC Rage and Noise 11 to name a few. Their single “Little Spaceships” chronicles the relatable feeling of feeling left behind when friends and loved ones move on.
