Babyteeth Cocoon

There’s soon to be something in your head. That something is the new single from BABYTEETH. “Cocoon” is the third single from the London based 5 piece, who with every release gets stronger and bolder. Another banger, it follows the success of “Shame” which saw them garner new fans in Radio 1 and Kerrang Magazine, who featured the band, not once, but twice in so many months.

Influenced by grunge and punk rock and inspired by strong female artists and role models, “Cocoon” arrives to rock the alternative world with BABYTEETH’s signature guitar sound. Reminiscent of your best loved 90’s rock bands, yet filtered through huge, exhilarating modern production, BABYTEETH are certain to become your new favourite band for 2019 and beyond. The new track not only makes an audio statement but a strong lyrical one to boot. “Cocoon is about how we’re sometimes addicted to making bad choices because they’re the more exciting. It’s also about how powerful it can be to decide to feel gratitude for all the shitty experiences, as they’ve turned you into a stronger version of yourself. It’s about personal rebirth, and remaking”.

These sentiments reflect in the bands video. In order to contribute to the eerie dark feeling of the song, it was shot in black and white, inside a 70’s time capsule- like, retro workingmen’s club in North London. The video features various imagery around the theme of death and rebirth – “Lot’s of it is hidden if you take a closer look”, say the band, which will prompt you to watch it over and over. BABYTEETH loved getting to “destroy a load of stuff”, despite it resulting in two of the members setting themselves on fire accidentally! Never give a band a can of lighter fluid is the real lesson here!

The video also hints at just how explosive BABYTEETH are live. It’s no wonder they were Live At Leeds ‘Ones To Watch’ and have supported the likes of The Naked and Famous and The Pearl Harts. The band is in demand and will finish the year as fast and furious as they started it when they support Adam Ant at a sold out Roundhouse in Camden on the 19th December.

Babyteeth are:
Camilla Roholm (vox, guitar)
Eilidh McKellar (lead guitar)
Rio Hellyer (bass)
