Teeth - See Spaces

This post is our last for about a week, as we take a break - our first since Christmas.

In the meantime we’d like to draw your attention to one of our favourite tracks of the moment - See Spaces by Teeth. Teeth are Ximon Tayki, Simon Whybray and Veronica So and we first wrote about them when we caught them live last June here. At the time their stage incarnation was a vigorous work-out of brawling punk-girl vocals and short spunky d-i-y electronics. In Veronica So Teeth had a highly charged aggressor of a front woman who seemed to know nothing except to go for it full tilt on every song. She was a grenade with the pin pulled - an explosion of violence, sexuality and dance.

Later in the year Teeth picked up a small level of fame after hacking into Lady Gaga’s Twitter account - the password unbelievably was the name of one of her singles.

See Spaces sees Teeth move forward to a higher level of sophistication than what has gone before. From riot girl electronics to a shimmery synth space anthem in just over a year, this is top level stuff. In what almost seems to be a statement of this new maturity Teeth have also dropped the three exclamation marks after their name - from Teeth!!! to just Teeth. Ultimately however they punctuate their name doesn’t matter - See Spaces is a supreme track.

See Spaces will be released on the 16th August 2010. The three piece will also be supporting the fantastic Sleigh Bells at a one off London gig at the Lexington in the same month. Based on our experiences of both bands live it has the potential to be one of the most riotous shows of the year. You can listen to See Spaces from the stream below - do it now, you won’t regret it.

See you in a week.
