Blip Blip Bleep’s self-released EP ‘Alarm Clock, Snooze Bar, Get Up” is six tracks of catchy, electro-rock goodness. The trio made up of Sean Han, Brett Thompson, and Sarah Lee, hails from Brooklyn NY, ‘Alarm Clock, Snooze Bar, Get Up,’ being their second release.
The album at times echoes a heavier more energetic Postal Service, with lyrics speaking directly to the urban dweller working the daily grind. I’m a huge fan of albums that tell stories, with this one starting at the beginning of the day with the alarm clock ringing in another work day, through the daily 9-5, going out on the town, and ending on the way home in the early morning hours.
It’s pop electronic beat pulls you right in with the title track, “Alarm Clock, Snooze Bar, Get Up,” with a dynamic mix of of synths, Thompson’s heavy beat, and Lee’s heart-fluttering backup vocals, you won’t be able to shake this song for days. “Okay Lover,” is a total radio hit waiting to happen, with lyrics of listening to Bob Dylan, and DJing in your underwear, the beat is amazingly infectious.
In a sentence, its very easy to see folks rocking out to Blip Blip Bleep on Lower East Side dance floors this Spring and Summer. I’m anticipating an excellent full release from these guys, hopefully this EP will see lots of success, and I’d be willing to be their live show is as high energy as their album.
