Teeth Of The Sea - Wraith (Rocket Recordings) 2019
London-based post-everything-and-whatever trio Teeth of the Sea are back with their fifth album Wraith. Exploring the dichotomy of their very own experimental and cinematic weirdness, Wraith is the trio’s most ambitious and irreverent effort. Built over this haunted and eerie Morricone meets Survive’s Stranger Things work, Wraith grows on you easily, becoming some sort of hypnotic and out-of-order trip into their drifting crescendo intensity.
There are obvious roots on experimentalism, both electronic and psychedelic, but there are also branches which extend into uncharted territories, both emergent and urgent. This new effort sees the band strip things back substantially, because there’s the same range of sounds and experimentalism; however on this occasion the atmosphere they create is even bleaker, where euphoria and surrealism bring along a new set of dynamics into their vivid and fearless sound.
Recorded in London at Soup Studios with Giles Barrett, Phantasy Sound with Erol Alkan and their own The Facility, Wraith is the kind of blowout you expect from the trio’s artistic approach, the perfect sound representation of Teeth of the Sea’s unique irreverence and distinctive creativity.
