Dipstick is a five-piece rock outfit consisting of Christian Spence (vocals), Lenny Muckle (guitar), Grant Foster (keys), Hayden Nease (bass), and Josh Thomas (drums). The band derives much of its sonic sensibility from ‘90s alternative music, giving audiences a nostalgic, feel-good experience with tracks like “Self Love” and “Sweet Like Sugar.
“Family Video’s music is a calculated blend of pop-punk, synthwave and indie rock that’s as polished as it is boisterous. The group’s most recent single, “Hyperdrive” displays this dichotomy in droves, bringing bright fuzzed-out synth rock that’s as restless as its subject matter.
The track’s sprawling sonic elements juxtapose the despondent manner of Josh Shabtai’s lyricism, which finds the narrator lamenting over an unsustainable hustle-heavy lifestyle.”
