London's premier electronic punk band, TEETH, rose to infamy at breakneck speed since their forming in 2008. Consisting of composer Ximon Tayki, vocalist Veronica So, and drummer Simon Whybray, TEETH enraptured a global audience with jubilant, no-rave jams and hacker dance anthems. Their much-anticipated LP debut WHATEVER will be released on Moshi Moshi Records in September 2011.
Bent on demolishing stages at night clubs, festivals, and warehouse parties with as much distorted noise as smooth synth melodies, TEETH deliver with an unapologetic edge. Their lo-fi, noise-pop assault is coupled with So's equally dynamic vocal performance that suggests a cross between a euro-pop princess and a riot-grrrl. The stroboscopic hi-NRG live shows and relentless online persona make TEETH incomparable amongst their contemporaries, although media outlets like Dazed and Confused state TEETH are "artier than Crystal Castles, more epic than Battles, [and] cheerier than Throbbing Gristle."
After garnering much deserved attention from every music magazine, blog, and DJ, TEETH released their first 7" single "See Spaces" on Moshi Moshi Records in August of 2010. Hailed as "a nastier Yeah Yeah Yeahs and a subtler Melt Banana" by the 405 and boggling the minds of critics who attempt to pin down their multitude of styles as "...acid rave, dance-hall, pop, punk, grunge, acid house, tropical and all out weird shyt," (MTV UK).
TEETH's ever-evolving and notorious internet presence continues to frustrate the media and hook fans. TEETH joined twitter (@T3ETH) in September of 2009 and immediately created controversy after impersonating famous writer Will Self for nine months--only ceasing out of boredom--and posting self-crafted faux BBC articles. In November 2009 Ximon hacked Lady Gaga's account by guessing her password. He greeted her 1.5 million followers with "Hay my babies!!! LOVE GAGA??? LOVE T33TH!!!," and "I swear my dick is not as big as T33TH'S!!!! POPWRLDSUCKZ!!! PUNX UNITE!!!! <3."
Since then TEETH have toured with Sleigh Bells, D/R/U/G/S and Is Tropical. They've played alongside No Age, Dat Politics, Crystal Fighters, Times New Viking, Factory Floor, Gang Gang Dance, and were invited to play Iceland Airwaves Music Festival in October 2010. TEETH's unwavering snotty punk attitude and precise, diverse sound keeps music critics and the masses alike continuously captivated. They'll stop when they stop having fun.
