Pop-Punk is a genre whose sound changes daily and no one set method of creating music, making it one of the more exciting genres in this day and age. Within this world though, few bands stand out as much as Milk Teeth, a three-piece who manages to combine such a wide range of styles into a unique sound that has caused people to gravitate to them en-mass. With their upcoming self-titled release, this is sure to be no different and to say I am excited to jump into it would be a massive understatement. 

Starting the album is Given Up, a bass-driven, infectious opening that demonstrates the band’s signature sound, showing listeners exactly what to expect from the rest of the album. Following on from this is Flowers which sounds like a homage to the early days of 90’s Pop-Punk while keeping a fresh edge while Dilute focuses on a more hardcore focused progression mixed with hard rock elements. Track 4 Better is up next and moves away from Pop-Punk to give listeners a more grunge-inspired experience that feels like a throwback to the late 90’s thanks to the simple yet incredibly catchy riffs throughout the track. Transparent also follows a similar formula with infectious bass lines and a bouncy beat that gets the song deeply imbedded in your mind. 

Track 6, Sharks blends Pop-Punk with elements of modern punk that create a unique flow and structure, with yet more bass-driven riffs and disjointed, distorted guitar that makes the listening experience slightly ominous. Up next is Medicine, where vocalist Becky Blomfield’s vocals take the center stage and truly shine through over the grungy instrumentals and Track 8 Destroyer is just a straight-up, hard-hitting punk song that will get your head moving with ease. Smoke is the next song of the album and works wonders as a moment to slow down on the release, with a softer sound and is a welcome breathe of fresh air from the usual disjointed aggression the band makes work so well.

Circles works like the title, taking the band’s sound back to what we heard at the start of the album with a blend of fast, aggressive grunge filled punk rock that flows perfectly into the final track of the album Wanna Be, which sounds like a love letter to the Pixies, even down to the structure of the track and especially within the bass across the track, a great way to end the album.

All in all, this is a fantastic album that shows one of the UK’s most promising Punk bands truly start to spread their wings and make an impact within the scene. From start to finish the album flows perfectly to create a release that feels like a love letter to the days of old that inspire them so obviously while also feeling completely fresh and modern, this is mostly down to the incredible writing and performances that are found in each and every track. Milk Teeth by Milk Teeth is one of the years must-hear albums without a shadow of a doubt.
