The Tooth, The Gap & The Filling

Label: unsigned
Impact date: Out now

We say

Founded and fronted by New Yorker Anna Kunz, Torture and The Spiders have been making waves on the Liverpool and London live music scene. Inspired by great musicians around her, especially her collaborators Max Meunier (drums) and Clara Cicely (bass), the music moves and shifts between pulsing drum beats and dense and nervy guitars, all united by Anna’s captivatingly powerful vocals that build in intensity and looming dread. Sounding like a blend of The Runaways, Bikini Kill and Patti Smith, the group’s latest release, The Tooth, The Gap & The Filling, is a spine chilling number about the battle of working in a hospitality job in order to fund your art. Today (31 October) sees them drop their DIY horror video – watch it here (those with dentist phobias don’t watch). If you are interested in catching them live, they play Sebright Arms in London on 11 November. Dramatic and ghoulishly good 90s inspired garage-punk.
