Sink Ya Teeth – ‘2’ (Hey Buffalo black vinyl LP)
From the opening growls of ‘Sweetness’ to the scuzzy swagger of ‘Blue Room’, the new album from Sink Ya Teeth mines the sound of the underground circa 1979 New York with a 2020 filter. This is electronic darkness hitting the dancefloor, a kind of minimal wave mutant disco that veers between the unsettling bleakness of post-punk and the life-affirming joy of alt-funk. Gemma Cullingford’s bass guitar underpins the synths and the machine beats, while Maria Uzor’s vocal delivery sells the songs with attitude. Classic synth duo timelessness.
