“Every time I make an album I swear it’s going to be a quick, easy, straightforward affair, but that doesn’t ever seem to happen. When I came back from the USA at the end of 2012, I had a bunch of new songs that I’d written for the tour and wanted to demo properly. AJ Bradford and I had some mutual friends and he had a nice studio so I went in there for a few days to track a demo of ‘Good Man’”, says Jess Cornelius.
“Somehow that demo turned into the beginning of this new album, although it would take an entire year before we got close to finishing it”.
“I was extremely lucky with the people involved too: Marc Regueiro-Mckelvie and Damian Sullivan from the live band both play a lot on the album, and we had Laura Jean and Peter Luscombe play on a couple of tracks, as well as Tim O’Connor from Ballads”.
Teeth & Tongue is the music project of New Zealand born, Melbourne-based musician Jess Cornelius. In 2011 Teeth & Tongue released second album Tambourine though Dot Dash/Remote Control.
