The French Tips
The French Tips are three women playing dance-punk bangers in Boise, Idaho. What began as an avenue for releasing pent up rage through music has evolved into a refuge from the personal and collective challenges of being a human over the past five years. The French Tips fuel their sound with an abundance of influences. Punk rock, post punk, disco, dance, pop, funk, surf, and doo wop are infused into the rock sound they have honed over two albums, 2019’s It’s the Tips and 2022’s All the Rage. Released in 2019, It's the Tips is an eight song ripper with heavy hooks and fevered dance beats that drive songs aching with righteous rage. A veritable feast of fourth wave feminist anthems, punk rock bangers and surfy love songs. The year of its release, It’s the Tips was the most played record on Boise community radio station KRBX. Their sophomore album released May 2022, features a gaudy pink cake brought to life by the talented Boise cake artist Sugar Librarian on its cover, All the Rage is a fire starter wrapped in pink cream. The record is a multicourse meal with pulsing dance beats, heavy guitar riffage and the nimble interweaving vocals of the three musicians. Following its release, they spent the summer promoting the new album at festivals and on the road with Built to Spill.
