Teeth Of The Sea drop the angular banger “I’d Rather, Jack”, produced & mixed by Erol Alkan

APPEARING ON THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM WRAITH (ROCKET RECORDINGS, 22ND FEB)
 LISTEN TO THE ELECTRO RIPPER “I’D RATHER, JACK”

The second track to be released from Teeth Of The Sea’s forthcoming and coruscating Wraith (which sees the light of day on February 22nd on Rocket Recordingsis also perhaps the most delirious and party-starting track the band have yet to create. An angular banger equal parts mariachi elegy and electro euphoria. “I’d Rather, Jack” was produced and mixed by Erol Alkan, using all the tools at his Phantasy Sound studio to transform it into a sleek yet furious assault on the senses, building from sombre electronic abstraction to a serotonin-jangling carnival parade finale in which beat-driven ballast collides with both an almighty brass and fuzz-guitar fanfare.

About the track Erol Alkan comments: I’ve been a fan and friend of Teeth Of The Sea for a number of years. We have a shared love of music people wouldn’t associate with me, so being able to work with them and flex that part of my musical mind was a joy.”

Thanks to his New Years Eve show, it was also proud to be the fifth song aired on BBC 6Music in the year 2019. “I’d Rather, Jack” is a Radio Edit single taken from the band’s fifth album Wraith that represents a fearsome and transporting marriage of the ferocious and the melancholic. Alchemised trash, kitchen-sink surrealism, out-of-order intensity and ritualistic overtones collides and colluded into a monstrous hybrid – this was a world where Tetsuo-The Iron Man would happily share space with Judee Sill, and where the acid guitars of Helios Creed would happily conspire with the Acid Rock of Rhythm Device. “I’d Rather, Jack” exists where the dancefloor meets the future meets the garage. It also has nothing whatsoever to do with the Reynolds Girls.
