What I'm Watching ... Time Crisis - "Blue Lips"

This summer the debut album by Time Crisis was completed, and we will release it on Fameless Fam September 14th. The first single, "Blue Lips", is a perfect example of what Time Crisis sounds like: electronica, hip-hop, and rock occurring together peacefully, and with confidence. This music video marks the debut of Time Crisis. The video was directed by Nicolas Heller, who recently did videos with the likes of Diplo, Homeboy Sandman, and C-Rayz Walz.

Time Crisis welcomes the challenge of pushing modern music forward by blurring the traditional lines that separate genres. The Pennsylvania-bred duo fuses electronic and organic sounds to produce an audio experience that is both progressive and catchy. From sequencer to six string, vocoder to violin, Time Crisis takes full advantage of an expansive sonic palette.

The duo began when Will Brown and Jon Markson met in Connecticut, where the PA natives attended college. Upon meeting, both were equipped with a unique take on music shaped by their respective upbringings. Markson was accustomed to the eclectic buzz of Allentown, while Brown embraced the urban boom bap of Pittsburgh. Markson was taken aback by Brown’s vertical stature and hip-hop instrumentals. Brown was equally enthralled by Markson’s moustache and guitar playing. The two bonded over a shared sense of humor and a passion for wildly expressive music, and Time Crisis was born.
