They are known for their upbeat concerts and flexible sound, which has allowed them to perform with a wide range of artists from different genres (Ishi, Blue The Misfit, Sealion, Mayta, Nite, Crocodiles, AJ Davila, Ken South Rock).
In 2015, SuperSonic Lips released their debut EP, “Grey Space.” Recorded and produced by Jordan Richardson (Son of Stan), the EP has received numerous comparisons to the sounds of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes, and The Kills. SuperSonic Lips recently took part in Ninkasi Brewing Company’s “Last Band Standing” program (also presented by Spune, Untapped Festival, and Do214) and emerged as winners of the competition; they earned free recording time at Ninkasi Studios in Oregon, as well as a spot in Untapped Festival 2016 alongside TV On The Radio and Gogol Bordello.
As the Whyte Noyze guys put it, both members grew up in very stereotypical, suburban households; Multi/ID in Carrollton and Melvin Gulley in Euless. Their parents weren't very accepting of their love for hip-hop. Multi/ID reminisces about his love for Cypress Hill's Black Sunday — and also its tragic end in his childhood home. “I had very evangelical parents — they found that album and broke it,” he says. Adds Gulley, “I think the album I got caught with was N.W.A. You know, growing up in a white household, they loved that.”
But the pushback they received from their parents wasn't enough to deter them from following their creative dreams. Multi/ID's brother had a studio set up in their parents' garage when they were kids, which allowed the now-anonymous artist to hone his skills. As for Gulley, he remembers a time before song recognition apps and entire websites dedicated to song lyrics, which forced him to put more effort into learning about his favorite music genre.
“I’ve always loved hip-hop. So, I eventually started writing down all the lyrics and that’s how I started memorizing the songs," Gulley says. "I started making music in high school. I played the drums. I was always messing around with beats. It just evolved from there." That evolution led the young beat-maker to Dallas Sound Labs (now MediaTech Institute). There he was able to dabble in audio engineering so that he wouldn't be "totally in the dark about that side (of the music business) either."
