LPX “Give Up The Ghost”

“Give Up The Ghost” is a new bold and uplifting track form LPX.  A powerful alt-rock track “Give Up The Ghost” layers its arrangement nicely and picks up intensely around the halfway mark.  LPX has been consistently releasing material since 2017 and will be releasing a new EP Junk Of The Heart hopefully in March 2019.

80’s sounding synthesizers softly added to by a synth bass that outlines the chords.  LPX softly begins recounting her hardships of falling time and time again through a forest landscape.  A small break allows time for a third synthesizer to make a sound similar to the wind blowing through leaves.  “Feels like we are both choking to breath” introduces a new character to “Give Up The Ghost” who we discover is a former significant other to our protagonist, they are both nostalgic for a past magnified by rose colored glasses.  A melodic clean guitar track joins the mix as the pacing of the track picks up.  The hi-hat count starts and you know you’re about to get rocked by “Give Up The Ghost”.  Finally the back beat is introduced and you feel chills down your spine as LPX really drives home “Give Up The Ghost”.  If any of that sounds like something you can get down with I’d definitely give LPX “Give Up The Ghost” a listen.


LPX is the solo alt vehicle of Lizzy Plapinger, co-founder of boutique record label Neon Gold Records (Christine and the Queens, Haim, Charli XCX, MØ, Tove Lo, Marina and the Diamonds) and lead singer of alt pop darlings MS MR. LPX has been described as “a modern New York City sound if there ever was.” In her own words “I’m too rock for pop. I’m too pop for rock. I make music for those who don’t care about what box it fits in.”

Today, after just wrapping up a North American tour as main support to MØ on the heels of an Australian tour with Falls Festival, LPX shares her new single, “Give Up The Ghost” HERE (produced by Guy Connelly and mixed by John O’Mahoney). Cut from the same romantic nostalgia as New Order or War on Drugs, “Give Up The Ghost” is pure heart fuel. Lizzy describes the single as “the action, affirmation and reflection of letting go and moving forward. Fresh starts from burnt ends.”

She independently released her audacious debut EP, Bolt in the Blue, in January 2018 to widespread critical acclaim. PAPER Magazine described it as “an electrifying six-song collection that melded the gutsy-tender songwriting of Karen O or Jenny Lewis with the spunk of Lily Allen and the pop sensibility of a Florence + the Machine, documenting her remarkable reflections on the complexities of modern romance.” Mixed by both Rich Costey (Muse, Interpol, Arctic Monkeys) and John O’Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem, Metric, Kills) the EP was executively produced by James Flannigan (, Matt Maeson).

Singles “Slide” and “Better” (a collaboration with WHAT SO NOT) and most recent release “Might Not Make It Home,” produced by Grammy Award winning Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, Børns, K Flay), have all gone #1 on triple J radio in Australia.

Live, LPX has performed as support for heavyweights Haim,  and RAC across North America on separate tours, one off dates with Glass Animalsand St Lucia, as well as a string of her own sold out headline shows. Additionally she’s graced festival stages for NGX in NYC, Fall Classic in DC (an *all female festival* she also co curated with Maggie Rogers) and most recently Falls festival in Australia alongside artists such as Interpol, The Vaccines, Catfish and the Bottlemen etc.
