Gum Takes Tooth’s “what-the-fuck aural mesmerism”

London duo Gum Takes Tooth are a self-described “two-man everything machine endlessly seeking what-the-fuck aural mesmerism”, and they suit the hyperbole.

The pair’s third album Arrow is a snarly, wired-up tangle of rusty electronics skuzzy psychedelia, noise-rock and nervous drones.

The vocals are abstract and buried under distortion, and the smoke and mirrors will surely only get more dense when they hit Bello Bar. Could be one of the most intense gigs of the year so far.
