Gemma Cullingford (Sink Ya Teeth)

Wide Boys

    Raised on a diet of Throbbing Gristle, Depeche Mode, New Order, Fad Gadget and A Certain Ratio, Gemma Cullingford's own trajectory has been equally impressive – from playing bass with Blast First/Mute signings Kaito, and more recently as one half of post-punk electronic dance duo Sink Ya Teeth. This solo offering further adds to her fine body of work.

    2020 saw Sink Ya Teeth having to abandon many live gigs and promotion for their second album, so during the band's downtime Gemma worked purposefully in her home studio on solo works of a more personal nature, the first fruits being this double A sided single. An album entitled "Let Me Speak" will follow in the summer of 2021.

    "Wide Boys" is a menacing disco call to action; "It's a message to the average man and woman on the street, many of whom seems to have been brainwashed by both those in power and by the far right. It's saying that every single one of us are being controlled as part of a big, sinister game. This is a response to my own awakening to that" she explains.

    "104" is an instrumental electronic jam for feet, limbs and loose minds. "The idea behind 104 came from wanting to start off with real sounding drums that subtly evolve into pure electro over 3 or 4 minutes".

    Ltd 7" Info: 250 only for the World.

    With "Two" Sink Ya Teeth want to beckon in another Summer of Love. Where their self-titled debut album, released in June 2018, channelled the carefree vibes of New York’s Danceteria and Paradise Garage circa 1983, the follow-up continues in this vein but delves deeper into their world. A world where melancholia and deep house make perfect bedfellows. Of late 70s post-punk and euphoric disco. Of rubbery staccato bass-lines and vocals that swing between sweet menace and deadpan indifference.

      "Sink Ya Teeth’s sound arrives fully formed—a melding of post-punks like ESG and The Raincoats with the early machine patters of Chicago house.” - Pitchfork.

      From the off, the self-titled debut album from Sink Ya Teeth drips with a cool menace. Weaving threads from post-punk, Chicago house and 80s/90s electronic music, the duo have produced an album of slick home-made pop that makes you wish it was the weekend again.

      Maria Uzor and Gemma Cullingford partnered up two years ago in their hometown of Norwich to form Sink ya Teeth.The pair’s “…drifting, danceable music that runs a gratifying line between groove and gloom” (The Quietus) has seen them tour with dance-punk band !!!, and perform with Moon Duo, Confidence Man and Goat Girl. They are about to join A Certain Ratio on their UK dates this Spring /Summer.

      The album was written, recorded and produced in their living rooms and is a synth-pop distillation of their world; often minimal, frequently playful, but always with bass and groove.
