"Pucker Up! YourLips YourLips in Hollywood Modern '80s band hits La Deux, July 14th"

It started out in France as a one-man show but now, YourLips YourLips has four members creating music in the city of Los Angeles.

"The inspiration of the band derives from flirting and attraction. It's dark because I grew up with bands like Depeche Mode and The Cure, but I'm an optimistic kind of guy so there's a beat," said the band's lead singer, Laurent Sanchiz.

"People in Hollywood know Les Deux; it's a really hot space," said Sanchiz while talking with Mekahlo Medina on NewsRaw about the bands upcoming performance. "We are going to be playing a free show so it's going to be really fun, a lot of great DJ's spin there."

The popularity of the band is quickly expanding within the space of just a year.
Sanchiz explains he wanted, "a group of friends, where we can talk about everything in life and hangout."

The band has composed an EP, "Take Control," consisting of six songs, which carries the flavor of the '80s and pop, making it what Sanchiz describes as, the "modern '80s." The songs, he says, are often influenced by the energy and connection between men and women.

YourLips YourLips is the first solo effort from artist "YL" (Laurent ). YL originally from France started his music career as a drummer shortly after visiting Laguna Beach California in the mid 90's where he met and became friends with drummer Dean Butterworth (Good Charlotte ). Tutored by Butterworth,YL ended up playing for various bands in LA which led him to join the fame goth band " Gene Loves Jezebel " ( 99- 2006 ).

After many years of touring YL decided to step down from playing drums and try his talent at writing. Early 2008 An Ep was born "Natural Selection" out of his LA studio with the collaboration of Ron devon Gottstein and a band was put together to perform live shows around town.

"Dark Disco" the single was performed on the Late Late night with Craig Ferguson in the spring of 08 but the band would soon after be dismantled by YL who was yet to find the right recipe for his vision. After a year long hiatus and more writing the new Ep "Take Control" which includes 6 tracks entirely written, recorded and produced by YL during the year 2009 would set up the new and improved version of YourLips YourLips. This time YL would call upon once again for bass player Chris Gonyaw, Steve Striegel on drums and adding Jeff Burgee on guitar to back him up Live.

"Take Control" released early 2010 online, is a more polished version than the early effort with powerful and melodic songs that will creep up in your head and make you move. From "Never Again" a dark stylish rock track to "Text" a pop bouncy hit with the sign of the time.

Led by YL's deep voice and charismatic personality the band is a modern take on 80's music with energy and rhythm. Watch them as they performed Never Again on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson to kick off their new EP " Take Control"...
