Returning from an eventful CMJ appearance and string of shows in NYC, Teeth & Tongue is back on home turf, playing shows in Melbourne and Sydney this week to celebrate the release of new single and video ‘The Party Is You’.
Together with band members Marc Regueiro-McKelvie and Damian Sullivan, Teeth & Tongue (AKA Jess Cornelius) will play a set of brand new, unreleased material full of oddball drum machine rhythms, guitars that sound like synths and synths that sound like guitars, all washed over with that distinctive voice.
On the making of the video for ‘The Party Is You’ Jess Cornelius says, “I put a call out on Twitter to see if anyone would be up for making us a free video, and Alifeleti was one of the directors who put their hand up. Originally I thought the weird drunk girl in the clip would be me, but luckily we found someone else to do it so I didn’t have to. The main idea was for her to be trying to get random strangers to dance with her. It morphed into her getting kicked out of lots of bars and parties, but I think she’s still endearing.”
