Loose Tooth Keep Up

With Keep Up, Melbourne three-piece Loose Tooth have inked their impeccable ear for a hook on a fresh sonic palate; the howling guitars of their first EP Saturn Returns peeled back to foreground the striking to and fro of the band’s distinctive vocalists.  That’s three for three – Etta Curry (drums, vocals), Luc Dawson (bass, vocals, guitar, keys), and Nellie Jackson (guitar, vocals) – long time friends with a democratic approach to both songwriting and influences.

Where Saturn Returns was squared in youthful abandon, the band’s debut album is the hangover; recognising a tension between keeping up in a shifting landscape of necessity and staking out your own version of happiness as you wave goodbye to your golden twenties.

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, Loose Toothhave a new clip for ‘Asteroids’ taken from their most recent album Keep Up.

‘A knack for sunny vocal harmonies, addictive basslines and their own take on the striped, sunlight sound made famous by predecessors like the Go-Betweens.” 4 1/2 stars – The Sydney Morning Herald.

Another Milk! Records signee, the mint rock trio Loose Tooth dropped their second LP, “Keep Up” in 2018. I must admit I was skeptical: How can Melbourne keep up the guitar-pop bands of such quality, But Loose Tooth were a pleasant surprise. Their transcendent rock certainly takes cues from bands like The Cure and that classic Melbourne jangle, but it’s nevertheless some of the freshest sounds coming out of the Australian metropolis. Etta Curry, Luc Dawson and Nellie Jackson know a thing or two about hooks, and “Keep On” is especially infectious, like a pleasant nag. With Barnett on their side and plenty of catchy rock melodies in their heads, this Loose Tooth won’t fall out anytime soon.

With Keep UpMelbourne three-piece Loose Tooth have inked their impeccable ear for a hook on a fresh sonic palate; the howling guitars of their first EP Saturn Returns peeled back to foreground the striking to and fro of the band’s distinctive vocalists – Etta Curry, Luc Dawson and Nellie Jackson.

Where Saturn Returns was squared in youthful abandon, Keep Up is the hangover; recognising a tension between keeping up in a shifting landscape of necessity and staking out your own version of happiness as you roll into your thirties. In a time where platitudes about moving on up and giving love a chance abound, Loose Tooth are saddling up and getting on with it.  In the words of Kurt Vonnegut, “you were sick but now you’re well, and there’s work to be done”.

Keep Up is out August 3rd.

‘Keep On’ is taken from Loose Tooth’s upcoming album ‘Keep Up’ out on the 3rd of August 2018:

Masters of crafting the most endearing indie rock we’ve heard in 2016, Melbourne three-piece Loose Tooth are unleashing their brand new EP via Milk! Records titled Saturn Returns. The EP was recorded and mixed by Paul Maybury (Rocket Science, Pink Tiles) and mastered by Mikey Young. Like their first single ‘Everything Changes’ devouring this EP has just made us hungrier for more sweet, sweet Loose Tooth in not-too-distant future.

The debut EP from Melbourne three-piece Loose Tooth on 180gms wax for your listening pleasure. Out April 1st, 2016.
Life-long friends Etta Curry and Nellie Jackson met in crèche and spent nap time dreaming of creating a heavenly racket. Long-time friend Luc Dawson was drafted in on bass to transform their pop sketches into the sort of songs that stick in your head for days. Whether spluttering to life on an empty tank or hitting harmonies in full flight, seeing LOOSE TOOTH really is a beautiful thing.
