Melbourne three-piece Loose Tooth announce their debut album Keep Up to be released on August 3rd. In addition, Loose Tooth share the album opener ‘Keep On’, watch the accompanying clip below!
With Keep Up, Etta Curry (drums, vocals), Luc Dawson (bass, vocals, guitar, keys), and Nellie Jackson (guitar, vocals) have inked their impeccable ear for a hook on a fresh sonic palate. Long time friends with a democratic approach to both songwriting and influences. Raised on the holy trinity of soul, country and Eddy Current, their debut LP is a living reminder that the B-52’s used to be a punk band and the light hasn’t gone out on the storied shores of St Kilda.
In ‘Keep On’, where Curry and Jackson’s spry chorus of “you will not be happy because you don’t know what you want” is played out in sharp relief to the listless characterisations of Dawson. Danny Cohen directed the video to the track that see’s the three-piece take their anthemic single across the land, sea, and the air in every way imaginable.
Recorded at Head Gap studios in Preston alongside Finn Keane, mixed by Anna Laverty and mastered by Mikey Young, Keep Up sees Loose Tooth open its doors to more textural hues without skimping on the pulp. Pre-order Keep Up here.
Loose Tooth are currently supporting Courtney Barnett on her UK / EU dates. They return to Melbourne and will play their album launch show at Howler on Saturday 25th August. Full tour info below.
