Within six months of releasing four individual songs to college and independent radio internationally, young Australian indie rockers, Lipstereo, have finally broken into the esteemed North American College and Community Radio Chart (NACC) with their brand new EP, 'Modern Mythology' sitting at #16 first week in.
Their EP was the 16th most added at NACC with 18 adds. NACC is a weekly Top 200 radio chart launched in January 2017. The NACC chart receives weekly airplay reports from over 200 radio stations across North America. After the dissolution of CMJ in 2017, NACC has become the primary source for the publication of college radio airplay. As a result the NACC Top 200 Chart was cited in several major news publications including Billboard and The Economist.
Lipstereo have recently received tremendous support in the United States with their most recent single, 'Take The Bus' making its chart debut at #25 on the Sub-Modern Singles Charts in the US, which tracks specialty rock shows on commercial radio throughout the US.
