On their Dualtone Records debut Sticking With It, Seattle-based seven-piece outfit, the Dip deliver the kind of unbridled soul/R&B that hits on every emotional level, inciting everything from raw catharsis to heavy-hearted reckoning to wildly exuberant joy.
Recorded at their self-made studio in Seattle’s Central District, the Dip's new album, Sticking With It, puts forth the groove-heavy, richly detailed sound the band has become known for. In a major breakthrough for the band, the self-produced album fully channels the vitality of the freewheeling live show that’s earned them an ardent grassroots following over the last decade, expertly matching their sophisticated musicianship with a fantastically loose energy. When met with the band’s lyrical reflection on matters both timely (the crush of late capitalism, the glaring need for true community) and undeniably timeless (the vast complexities of love and loss), the resulting body of work captures the mood of the current moment while offering immediate escape into a more elevated state of mind.
