To celebrate the release of their brand new single ‘Sad Sun’, Melbourne outfit Teeth and Tongue are heading on tour with Ned Collette and Wirewalker throughout November.
Teeth and Tongue will support Ned Collette and Wirewalker on Friday 20 November at North St Bar in Bateman’s Bay, Saturday 21 November at The Raval in Sydney, Friday 27 November at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, and Saturday 28 November at The Alley Cat in Hobart.
In November 2008 Jess Cornelius released Monobasic, her debut album under the moniker Teeth and Tongue. Essentially a solo project, Monobasic combined elements of pop, garage and post-punk with metronomic precision and haunting vocals, resulting in radio favourite ‘There Is A Lightness To My Bones’ and hypnotic crooner ‘Stacey Come Over’.
Over the past twelve months Teeth and Tongue have evolved into a full band with a grittier and looser sound. Consisting of Steve Masterson (Bird Blobs), Marc Reguiro-Mckelvie (Popolice) and Patrick Millman (Wicked City), the band’s interpretation of these songs always ensures their mysterious beauty remains intact.
Brand new single ‘Sad Sun’ is the first release from the newly-evolved Teeth and Tongue. Available for digital download via iTunes on November 7, this is the first single from the band’s forthcoming album, due for release in early 2010.
Over the past year Teeth & Tongue have performed with Juana Molina (Argentina) Mountain Goats (US), Bachelorette (NZ), Jen Cloher, Philadelphia Grand Jury, Beaches, Wagons and Songs, and toured the country with Jack Ladder and Kid Sam.
