One of our surprise additions to The Others Way's astonishing line-up, whistling sensation Molly Lewis is set to unveil her debut full-length album at last this February. Following two of our favourite EPs of all time, The Forgotten Edge, and Mirage, new record On The Lips features a stunning array of special guests, including El Michels Affair, members of Badbadnotgood and Thee Sacred Souls, Nick Hakim, and more. Molly's phenomenal whistle is so much more than the novelty you might imagine, having taken her around the world, appearing on some of the most prestigious and bizarro stages there are. Don't miss out on On The Lips! - Flying Out

Consider this your invitation to Café Molly, a lounge bar like they don’t make them anymore. The lights are low, the martinis are ice cold, the banquettes are velvet, and the stage is set for the electrifying talent of whistler Molly Lewis.

After the exotica stylings of The Forgotten Edge EP and the tropicalia-indebted Mirage EP, Molly wanted to encapsulate the sound of Café Molly for her debut album On The Lips, a dreamy tribute to classic mood music, it conjures up misty visions of classic Hollywood jazz clubs, Italian cinema soundtracks and lingering embraces between lovers.

Recorded with producer Thomas Brenneck of the Menahan Street Band at his newly-built Diamond West Studios in Pasadena, and with something of an open door policy during the sessions, a stream of acclaimed musicians ended up across the album’s 10 tracks, including Nick Hakim, Latin Grammy-nominated Brazilian guitarist Rogê, Leland Whitty and Chester Hansen of Canadian instrumental group Badbadnotgood, Chicano soul group Thee Sacred Souls appear on the melancholy Crushed Velvet, experimental jazz pianist Marco Benevento and El Michels Affair’s Leon Michels.

With her intoxicating compositions, and wry brand of stagecraft (she might not be singing up there, but she can sure tell a joke) Molly Lewis looks set to join her heroes in the storied lore of the Los Angeles lounge scene and beyond. So pull up a chair, order your favorite drink, and prepare to fall for On The Lips.
