"HER LIPS MIGHT SHATTER"

07.25.2009 - HER LIPS MIGHT SHATTER

Alisa Nizhniy, una artista nacida en Kiev y establecida en Los Angeles, lanza su primer disco “Heads fall like balloons” bajo el largo seudónimo de Her Lips Might Shatter, con ritmos disco, dance y electrónicos. Sin duda, un manjar para los amantes del electro-pop.

Alisa Nizhniy entró en la escena indie electrónica en 2006 a los 18 años de edad, con el proyecto emotronic PseudoNecrophile, que tuvo una colaboración con Steven Clark, el fotógrafo responsable de la parte visual en las imágenes detrás de Her Lips Might Shatter.

El sonido de HLMS clasifica como parte de la reciente afluencia de jóvenes artistas electrónicos. Nizhniy dice, “Podrías adivinar que ninguno de nosotros quería algo demasiado particulamenter pulido. Estoy obsesionada con Peaches, que no utiliza el brillo de alta fidelidad o saturadaciones de reverberación. Mi mayor prioridad ahora es disfrutar el proceso de descubrir a dónde voy. Lo que más disfruto es ser DJ y de esta manera rendir homenaje a toda la música que amo”.

Her Lips Might Shatter

Her Lips Might Shatter (consisting of Kiev-born, Houston-raised, Boston-schooled, Los Angeles-based female producer Alisa Nizhniy) calls upon influences from 80’s euro-synth-pop, disco-house, and industrial music. "I try to make electroclash, but I always get side-tracked,” says the ex-contortionist.

Alisa Nizhniy checked into the indie electronic music scene in 2006 at 18 years of age, as one half of the ghettotech, emotronic project, PseudoNecrophile, which is a collabo with Steven Clark, the photographer responsible for the visual imagery behind Her Lips Might Shatter.

Her Lips Might Shatter is the latest young female electronic artist to make some sort of impact, But where as most rely on help in some form, Her Lips Might Shatter sets herself apart as an entirely self produced musician doing every bit of tweaking herself!

And you know what, it's impressive stuff. Her songs have a gritty almost ADULT. sort of feel to them with a bit of proper synth pop and maybe even a bit of Peaches thrown in. The tunes just about jump around more than a kid on a hopscotch court. HLMS is not held back by genre or production ideals, oh no, Alisa just mixes everything she loves into a giant beatific gumbo that's as slinky and sexy as it danceable, cold, and calculated. It's really quite nice stuff.

"Just Jak It."

Pseudonecrophile are a boy and a girl from Houston, Texas, who I seem to have stumbled across out of nowhere. However, since hearing them only a few days ago on the old myspace I have became somewhat obsessed with their irresistable blend of electronica and attitude, a mix that hits hard but manages not to sacrife its pop edge. Imagine Crystal Castles if all they listened to was Justin Timberlake. Or something like that. The track that has stuck in my head most is 'Jak It', an ode to a Jack Mitchell who, as the song informs, is a sex god. Apparently. Bass-heavy beats and quicksharp vocals is the name of Pseudonecrophile's game - and it's the kind of game I want to play.
The remix by supercool Parisian Gohan is also highly recommended and worth checking out, and if you enjoy that you can download his album from his myspace. 'John Woo' is a bit of a tasty tidbit to get your juices flowing. It got mine going for sure. Bonus, non? - http://wewererockstars.blogspot.com


"Some Questions and Answers with Her Lips Might Shatter!"

Tuesday, July 28, 2009
By: Aaron Z. Lee

Her Lips Might Shatter is a one woman electro DJ dance party named Alisa Nizhniy who is from Los Angeles by way of Houston, Texas. Her sound is close to what you would get if you were to allow Fischerspooner, Peaches and Goldfrapp to enter thunderdome for a massive tag team match. Each track has a processed digital crunch that is sure to populate dance floors everywhere. I had a chance to talk with the emerging artist about her origins, inspirations and favorite snack.

You were born in Kiev Ukraine but raised in Houston Texas, how and why did you and your family come to the states?

There was that minor issue of getting away from the pesky aftereffects of real socialism. So we immigrated, and eventually, my parents encouraged most of our extended family to come down to the states as well. Houston has the swankiest, cheapest real estate you could ever imagine, with infinite free parking in the comfort of a large metropolis, complete with centralized A/C everywhere. Also, a decent amount of thrift stores, artsy hide-outs, goth kids, junkies, and electro parties. The sweetest people live there, too.

Were you always interested in music?

My folks have cassette tapes of me singing the songs of Alla Pugacheva when I was two years old living in Italy. When I was five, my brother would occasionally blast trance music, drive me around, and take me to parties where they played Modern Talking and all this new dance shit that Sony was releasing at the time. It stuck with me, what can I say!

Did you find that Houston Responded Well to your electronic music?

People have gotten crazy at Pseudonecrophile shows and hung upside down from the ceiling. Houston has always embraced electronic music.

Where does the name 'Her Lips Might Shatter' come from?

I thought of a large, extravagant chandelier, and how cool it would be to break one. Then, I thought that a lamp breaking is pretty obvious. So the thought of lips shattering was weirder. They would have to be frozen or frozen in outer space.

What's the most fun show you've played so far?

A week ago I performed a couple of songs in Denver for my aunt and uncle’s 50th anniversary!! By 11:00 PM my cousins and I were making imaginary snow angels on the patio. I was completely gone, because members of my family kept giving me shots: “Here Alisa, try this vodka; Yes, but have you tried THIS vodka?! Alisa do a shot with us!!” So that was especially fun, since I can easily get wasted off just a glass and a half of champagne.

What's your favorite gadget or tool for making music?

Anything to synthesize the organic. I like messing with vocoders and pitch shifters and lots of layering. I wish I had something cool to talk about in this category, but I use the Logic synths and processors.

What's the most recent awesome track you've listened to?

It’s Not My Problem (Thin White Duke Remix) by Sneaky Sound System. And I have to listen to Salem every night before I go to sleep. I HAVE to.

How do you feel about the auto-tune explosion that's happened in the last year?

I swear that for every big trend, there must be subcultures of people out there who are completely bummed out that someone is exploiting their peculiarities. Like that South Park episode about the vampire kids. Auto-tune was cool before it became “mainstream,” and it’s cool now, and it will still be cool when everyone else thinks its lame again. Britney Spears- Blackout was the first mainstream album to use tasteful, prominent auto-tune. I’m not impressed with the sloppy conspicuous auto-tune technique that’s hot in hip-hop now. Otherwise, the obvious reaction to these trends is to drink perfume or do something else that can hardly ever become cool.

If you could perform a duet with anyone living or dead who would it be?


If I had to pick only one other artist and only in the realm of music, it would be Felix Da Housecat. I wouldn’t mind walking on stilts with Marilyn Manson.

After a night of DJing/Dancing/Performing, you need to recharge, What is your snack of choice and why?

Tapioca almond cream tea from the Teahouse in Houston. I’ve turned on so many people to that place. I’ve tried bubble tea in Boston and LA, and some do the trick, but they just don’t compare. If there’s midnight sushi anywhere, I certainly wouldn’t mind that either.

Bio

Indie dance artist HER LIPS MIGHT SHATTER (consisting of Kiev-born, Houston-raised, Boston-schooled, Los Angeles-based female producer Alisa Nizhniy) calls upon influences from 80’s euro-synth-pop, disco-house, and industrial music. "I try to make electroclash, but I always get side-tracked,” says the ex-contortionist.

Alisa Nizhniy checked into the indie electronic music scene as one half of the ghettotech, emotronic project, PseudoNecrophile, which is a collabo with Steven Clark, the photographer responsible for the visual imagery behind HER LIPS MIGHT SHATTER. Music stores, comic book shops, podcasts, and Urban Outfitters have regularly been blasting the infectious PseudoNecro anthem “Jak It,” which, at 150 BPM, proclaims, “Jack Mitchell is a sex god.”

The HLMS sound classifies as a part of the recent influx of young female electronic artists, however Her Lips Might Shatter sets herself apart as an entirely self produced musician. While all tracks on HEADS FALL LIKE BALLOONS were written, programmed, and produced by Nizhniy, two of the most exciting tracks -- “Counterfeit” and “My Mind is Tricking Me” -- were mixed and mastered by Ernie Indradat. The two synth kids shared a passion for anti-pop production.

Nizhniy says, “You might guess that neither of us particularly wanted something overly polished. I am obsessed with Peaches, who doesn’t use hi- fi glitz or saturated reverb when it would normally be expected in a club track like “I Feel Cream.” Everything sounds raw, but perfect… I heard AA XXX, and I wanted to be a part of that feeling... My biggest priority now is to enjoy the process of getting wherever I'm going. What I enjoy most is DJing and this way paying tribute to all the music that I am in love with. Mixing is the sweetest art form... setting the levels, turning 10 songs into one adventure. I am currently writing dancier music.”

Her Lips Might Shatter DJ sets incorporate indie dance, house, and electro.
