At the end of a short, successful tour promoting single “If You See Me” on 1965 Records, Sink Ya Teeth returned to their home city with a triumphant gig at Norwich Arts Centre, a good crowd turned out to welcome them home on this triumphant return. Gemma and Maria have also had plenty of national airplay for the single too, I myself have been delighted to catch them at least twice on BBC6 Music from Lauren Laverne and Tom Ravenscroft.
The music was opened by three-piece Painted Heathers with a punchy and entertaining set of tunes that occasionally brought to mind the 90s indie sound, particularly Blur and Elastica.
There was a great atmosphere for this gig and a lot of love for Gemma and Maria who appeared to be having a lot of fun. Towards the end, for the single they recreated the video onstage with lots of friends joining them for a dance. A band going from strength to strength, every gig feels “bigger” and more powerful, I am so pleased they are getting the recognition they so richly deserve, and felt lucky to get myself one of the last copies of the single on 7″ vinyl … they have all gone now of course. There’s an intensity and underlying darkness at times in what as a whole is a glorious sound.

(We got a hometown show, y’all!) 🙂
Sink Ya Teeth, bring their dance-infused post-punk minimalism to Norwich Arts Centre. Described as both mesmerising and ferocious by fans and industry alike, the two-piece possess a primal intensity that reflects the bands name.
Join them as they celebrate the launch of their debut single on 1965 Records, ‘If You See Me’, a playful, bass-driven electro groove with spatial synthetic sounds.
Big thanks to NAC, Sink Ya Teeth, Joel, Painted Heathers, & Pete Keeley
