CROOKED TEETH RELEASE NEW SINGLE "YOU AND ME (WHATEVER)" OFF FORTHCOMING EP "HONEY" OUT NOVEMBER 16
Southern California’s Crooked Teeth, have had quite the year thus far, with the signing to independent record label, Rude Records, and the re-issue of their EP, Pastel. Pastel, which released in May, offered a brand new single, “Crawl,” featuring guest vocals from Stand Atlantic lead-vocalist, Bonnie Fraser. Offering a unique blend of eclectic yet gratifying mixture of pop-punk, emo, and alternative sounds, Crooked Teeth are exhilarated to release their follow up EP, Honey, due out November 16th. The EP was Produced by Matt Lang, and takes the listener on a rollercoaster of emotions from the infectiously catchy “Hate Me” track, to the effervescent tune, “Absent,” leading straight into their debut release, “Honey.”
Today, they are excited to unveil another single off their forthcoming release, “You and Me (Whatever)” which delves into the band’s love for pop music while adding their own twist to the genre with guitar driven spins. Lead vocalist Tyson Evans expands: “This song is an unabashed step into that door. To me, it pays homage to the infamous Tom Petty quote, “Don’t bore us, get to the chorus.”
The single follows their latest release, “Hate Me,” a song that portrays honesty, self-empowerment, and as Evans expands, “declaring that hope that the viewer/listener can take something positive from it.” The music video was shot in Phoenix with Yellow Box films and was centered around the premise of putting the focus on individuals who are prone to facing adversity in their everyday lives simply for being who they are. Evans continues, “our music is always written from the heart and for the heart. In saying that, I feel it’s important that we also put the spotlights on others and their experiences. We’re very proud of this video, the character and the honesty of the individuals.” Fans can stream the entire music video, here!
Prior to the release of “Hate Me,” Crooked Teeth unveiled their debut launch, “Honey” which peaked at #1 on KROQ’s Locals Only station. An emotionally forward track about not caring about another person and letting the past stay in the past. The song exudes confidence, while toying with one’s inner demon that nothing is ever really over. Lead vocalist, Tyson Evans expands on the building of the track, by stating, “Instrumentally, we mimicked a midi melody on guitar and virtually made the guitar sound like a cool sub bass midi lead. The chilled out bridge interlude was heavily inspired by the Deftones.” The band paired the release of this single with a music video, which can be viewed here.
