Sink Ya Teeth consists of Maria of Girl In A Thunderbolt and Gemma of Kaito. Having got together three years ago, this self-titled debut has been recorded in their living rooms in Norwich. Despite the humble beginnings, SYT make BIG music. The sound has its roots in the best of 80s art-pop - think Soft Cell, Heaven 17 or OMD – and leftfield rock. The duo add dashes of classic disco, electronica, dub and 90s Bjork and then wrap it all up in a sheen of sparkling Giorgio Moroder sonics.
In an alternate reality, the likes of Freak 4 The Kick, Glass or Petrol Blue would be dominating the airwaves, blasting out in pubs, clubs, chain stores and supermarkets. In this universe, the music is, perhaps, slightly too intelligent, a little too challenging and maybe a smidge too dark for that. That said, as questing and experimental as this is, at heart it is pop - instantly classic, timeless, danceable POP - and it is very, very fine indeed.
