Inspired by the creative DIY spirit of post-punk, the groove of early Chicago house, and the clatter and effervescence of 80s and 90s dance and electronic music, Sink Ya Teeth are a pair who produce music that bounces effortlessly between groove and gloom.

Maria Uzor and Gem Cullingford, who write, record, and produce all their music in their living rooms, partnered up at the tail end of 2015 to form Sink Ya Teeth. The two-piece mix unsettling vocals, chewy prominent basslines, and searing and stabbing synths to create a sound that’s playfully minimal but with crystalline primal energy that’s purely their own.

Their eponymous debut album, released in June 2018 on Hey Buffalo, received widespread accolades. It was a 6 Music ‘Album of the Day’, and the station’s Amy Lame made it her ‘Album of the Year’, and was championed by Steve Lamacq, who invited them via BBC Introducing, to Maida Vale Studios to recorded a session.

Where the band’s debut album channeled the carefree vibes of New York’s Danceteria and Paradise Garage circa 1983, their follow-up, Two, delves deeper into their world. A world where melancholia and deep house make perfect bedfellows. A world where late-night 70s post-punk and euphoric disco have it out on the dance floor. It’s dark disco, sure, but it’s OK to dance in the dark.

Both albums were self-released on the band’s own Hey Buffalo label, and have received continued support from BBC 6 Music, with 5 singles being playlisted. Two was also Album of The Day on  BBC6Music three days after its release. The pair have garnered fans in Bill Brewster, Dave Haslam, James Lavelle (UNKLE), Lauren Laverne, and A Certain Ratio, and are gaining recognition for their live shows.
