Having blown us away with their completely captivating live performance at The Finsbury, Norwich duo Sink Ya Teeth are fast becoming one of our favourite bands. With the addictive, pulsating beats and ‘80s-inspired dance-pop hooks of previous singles ‘If You See Me’ and ‘Glass’, they’ve received acclaim from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Pitchfork and The Guardian, and now they’ve shared a brand new track.
Produced in the living rooms of Gemma Cullinford and Maria Uzor, ‘Pushin’ is propelled by pounding beats and funk-fused bass hooks with shades of the likes of the thumping electro-punk of LCD Soundsystem. Add Uzor’s smooth, soaring vocals into the mix and the result is an utterly infectious, whirring soundscape that’ll have you up on the floor in no time.
Of the track, Maria explains:
“It’s about addiction… not necessarily to drugs, more about just looking for a way out when things get a bit ropey. And then that almost spiritual feeling you get when the pressure is released. You gotta be able to dance it off… ‘Dance till you feel better’ as James Brown said.”
‘Pushin’ is out today, ahead of the release of Sink Ya Teeth’s debut album later this year.
