Album Review: Teeth – ‘Whatever’

Album Review: Teeth - 'Whatever'


Electro Riff Ridden Music For Drunken Nightime Listening

At 6am when you crawled into your flat with eyes vibrating like tennis balls in a washing machine, you swore you’d never go clubbing again. But now it’s nearly midnight, you’ve had twelve Jägerbombs and you feel amazing, if also on the verge of tears. Time then for London three-piece [a]Teeth[/a]’s ‘[b]Whatever[/b]’. It’s a collection of booming jagged electro riffs, Chicks On Speed vocals and high-bpm galloping breaks. This is catchier than [a]Justice[/a] and heavier than [a]The Big Pink[/a], if even less subtle than both of them. Like unexpected prison sex on Christmas

Day, it may provoke a mixture of conflicting emotions, but none of them are likely to be boredom.
