Gum Takes Tooth, the London duo of Jussi Brightmore and drummer Tom Fug unique unclassifiable fury that flirts with both speaker-ripping psych-rock pyrotechnics and synapse-shredding acid house reveal the latter musical style on their new single.

Fights Physiology (Radio Edit), the third track to be released from bands debut Rocket album ‘Arrow’ is a four minute nightclub pounding demolition workout. Sounding like a track lost from the 80s underground that a crate digging explorer recently unearthed and re-revealed to the world on their NTS Radio show...It doesn’t sound from the 80’s, it sounds from the future, full of explorative head banging wonderment.

While this track is the first all-electronic Gum Takes Tooth recording to be released (featuring only electronic drums rather than acoustic kit), the performance retains the live ethic that the band have championed since their inception. Analogous to a band performance using traditional instrumentation, the drums and synths have been programmed and tweaked on the fly in real-time to exhilarating effect at counterpoint to cold and scathing vocal delivery. The track has formed a springboard of electronic workouts of accelerating velocity that have comprised significant portions of the band’s live sets in recent times.

The stunning b-side of this single is a Beste Aydin, AKA ‘Nene H’ and is one of the most exciting breakout acts in Techno. Based in Berlin, she’s hailed as part of a new generation that is pushing the genre forward, the prefect accompanying pairing to pulsate those late night rushes.

Gum Takes Tooth are mavericks to the last, perpetual square-pegs and a band intent on forging onward to break all or any paradigms before them, creating a collection of kinetic anthems to battle everyday oppression - a work of machine-driven mania with its very human heart on its sleeve.

Gum Takes Tooth London, UK

Two man everything machine endlessly seeking what-the-fuck aural mesmerism in a maze like arrangement of sound system culture, riffs and pan-cultural psychedelics. Dark primal frequencies are felt and not heard, unremitting circular drums shatter and rebirth whilst vocals provide an astral guide through dizzying new sound worlds. ... more
