Critically acclaimed in Italy Saint Lips is taking on the USA, one set of ears at a time. Led by the sexpot Valentina's sultry vocals, they easily meld the heat of the Velvet Undergroud with the alt-pop edge of The Strokes. Creating a 21st century sound while tipping their hat to the 70's and 80's.
