Bio

The Sinking Teeth started above a grubby pawn shop on Brunswick’s notorious Sydney Road, built to soothe a common creative need between Julian Doan (Bass) & Nick Manuell (Guitar). It became something to focus on / Something to take seriously / Something to be honest about.

Since 2011 Teeth have been terrorizing venues across the country with their own personal brand of yelly punk and stage smack talk. Sometimes getting caught up in the party and the bullshit, but always with one eye on the eventual goal of creating something to be proud of.

Insert here the release of their debut EP White Water in late 2013, which put them on the road with a slew of noteworthy acts including Bodyjar, Luca Brasi, Kingswood & Jimmy Eat World. They have felt the enormity of the stage at The Forum in Melbourne, the intimacy of Ric’s Bar in Brisbane, and the harrowing reality of sometimes playing to no one in the middle of nowhere.

And then what? Well…life. Breakups and makeups. The drop out of the band’s original drummer, and the chemistry project involved in finding someone new to fit the mold. Adrian Van Bloom joined in 2016 to lay the concrete. Here we are at the tail end of the slacker boom but Teeth aren’t going to pretend that making an album is easy. It’s a root canal.

The first taste of their debut extended play is ‘Good Grief’, a hard hitting two minutes and fifty four seconds built around the concept of growth after loss. Fitting for a band that are putting down the foundations for something big.

WHAT A TUNE! Any artist who can add a Celtic/Chinese Tin Whistle (or flute??) to their strong instrumentals definitely has my attention. If not it's definitely the words Space and Carbonara that get me.

Absolutely love the killer build of guitar and drums throughout this one and the psychedelic influences that dive through. But that electric guitar has me head of heels.

If you're into Tame Impala and King Gizsard and the Lizard Wizard, you will love this one!
