LOOSE TOOTH 'Keep Up' LP
'Keep Up' is the debut album from Melbourne three-piece Loose Tooth. With Keep Up, 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. 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.
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. Out via Milk! Records.
