Everything you read about Sweden's Sweet Teeth (including right here on this site) is going to compare them to both Husker Du and Dinosaur Jr, but with good reason. Their latest single, "Love Panic," has that 90's alt-rock/power pop sound we love here. It has that melody meets crazy noise you find with Husker Du and the wall of guitar noise you get with Dinosaur Jr. This is that absolutely perfect mix of catchy and noisy that pretty much hits all of my music fandom buttons. If that's your kind of thing, too, you're going to adore "Love Panic."
Sweeth Teeth say of the new album:
”'Love panic' is by far the most powerpoppy song we’ve ever written, I’m not sure if we’ll ever do one like this again. The lyrics are about classic first date nerves and all the anxiety and joy that love brings, hence the title. It’s influenced by late ’80s and early ’90s alternative rock; from the Sonic Youth-inspired intro, to the line of text saying 'whatever’s cool with me.'"
You can watch the video for "Love Panic" below. High Anxiety is due out October 14 on Lovely Records. For more on Sweet Teeth, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram.
