single release - 'Pushin'
Out 2 February 2018
Electronic duo Sink Ya Teeth reveal their third single 'Pushin' ahead of their forthcoming debut album, released later this year.
‘Pushin’, out 2 Feb 2018, lands a punch from the off, with it’s naggingly insistent bass hook and 4/4 tub-thump, conjuring the fat sounds of LCD and Daft Punk. A chunk of minimal home-made synth-pop with acidic vocals, it weaves house, funk and post-punk together, transcending to a chorus of chants of ‘Hallelujah” where the dance floor becomes your chapel and the beat your altar.
Gemma Cullingford and Maria Uzor formed the band two years ago, and wrote, recorded and produced ‘Pushin’ from their living rooms in Norfolk during the Summer of 2017.
“It’s about addiction, essentially” Maria explains of the song. “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”.
Sink Ya Teeth’s new single ‘Pushin’ is available from 2 Feb 2018 on Hey Buffalo Records.
