The band played their first ever London headline show last Friday at Camden’s Black Heart.
Cut It, which is only the fourth ever single from badass London-based five piece BABYTEETH, hits you in the gut, leaving you breathless. Mixed by Ric Levy (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers), it’s another catchy as f… tune from the group. Cut It follows the success of their last single Cocoon, which received love from BBC Radio 1 and Kerrang! Radio, as well as winding up in the Amazing Radio Top 40 chart and picking up plays on radio stations in the know across Europe, the US and Australia.
After playing with the likes of The Naked and Famous and The Pearl Harts, the band ended 2018 with a bang, opening up for the legend that is Adam Ant at The Roundhouse in Camden. 2019 is set to bring many more chances to catch the band tearing up stages and Friday saw Babyteeth played their first ever headline show – a special single release gig at The Black Heart in Camden.
Grunge and punk rock inspire and inform the Babyteeth sound, especially on this latest cut as lead singer Camilla Roholm’s barbed words permeate your psyche, “You’re a disease, God help me, Just let it bleed, Cut it all out” The message is clear, don’t cross Babyteeth. “Cut It is basically a break up song,” explains Roholm. “The split might be from a partner, friend or even just a bad situation. It’s about cutting out the poisonous parts and feeling better for it. There are some cheeky references to more specific things too which we’ll keep to ourselves…”
“With the video we tried to loosely convey two conflicting states of mind,” continues Roholm, referencing the single’s accompanying music video, also out now. “The room we shot in is supposed to be reminiscent of a padded cell, yet it’s a bright colourful one that you enjoy being in so you don’t want to leave.” And to add to the madness, drummer Samantha head-banged so hard during filming, she knocked herself out on a wall and was left with two black eyes and a forehead lump the size of a dolphin’s nose.
The band had their wrap party in A&E.
