FRESH: ‘Cocoon’ – Babyteeth

British group Babyteeth release their third single “Cocoon” today!

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.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
