It’s been a good year for electro-pop, Owl City notwithstanding. Miike Snow, Passion Pit, La Roux, Little Boots, Little Dragon – and you could even include bands tilting that way, like Phoenix and the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But enough name-dropping – here’s the next electro-pop sensation, London three-piece Chew Lips. No album yet, but the few songs popping up on the Internet are absolute charmers, including “Solo” (included on JeffMix2009.04.30) and the aptly named “Slick,” available below. Yeah yeah yeah.
