Album Review: Eager Teeth - Eager Teeth

imageMembers of the impressive roster of A Wolf at Your Door alumni (with other such breakaway successes such as Lower Than Atlantis, Deaf Havana, and this year’s hopefuls Mallory Knox) Eager Teeth have been taken under the wing of AWOYD, which seem to generate success. These guys must be excited. A refreshing take on post hardcore, a more friendly take on punk, Eager Teeth’s self titled debut album bursts with energy, not seeming to take a breath.

The perfect song to open the album, ‘Mary Rosed’ sets the precedent for the rest of the album, immediately defining their sound and displaying the talents of the band. One of the main things that stands out is just how raw these guys sound; it’s just pure rock n’ roll, balls to the wall punk rock.

Live Review: Set Your Goals, Mixtapes, Eager Teeth & Leopards – Moho Live, Manchester, 09/08/2012

It’s the middle of the summer holidays. This is usually the time for fun and lots of partying. What better soundtrack to this than some quality pop punk to keep the momentum. All this can be found right here in the middle of Manchester in some small, freakishly warm, compact venue.

The first of tonight’s line up to keep all attendees interested is Leopards from Cheshire. Although they start off stiffly, this band eventually come into their own presenting thick alt rock guitars and atmosphere enhanced by the wonderful vocals of lead vocalist Jenna Clarke. Their use of innovative instrumentation and proggy pop formula a la Minus the Bear definitely underlines them as one’s to watch.

Consisting of former members from This City, Telegraphs and Chaos Days, Eager Teeth from Brighton are a bit of a puzzle at first but by the end of their set, it all begins to make sense. Mixing catchy melodic choruses with a hint of rock n roll swagger provides very good entertainment. As a live band they behave as a tightly wound businessman that goes sadistically unhinged from a frustrating line of work. When the new album drops I for one urge you to buy it and do some endless jamming because I will.
