Track: Teeth Machine – Shiny
London’s Teeth Machine have once again partnered with label Ra Ra Rok to share a long awaited new single. Produced by Ben Romans-Hopcraft (Childhood, Warmduscher, Miss Tiny) and Jamie Neville, ‘Shiny’ is released today as the latest teaser from a longer project expected in 2024.
What They Said: “The song came to life in the summer of 2022, emerging into new musical form after coming across some old lyrics in the back of a notebook from a few years prior. It’s about a lot of things; it often feels redundant to write about the “aboutness” of music in this way. What I can recall is that I’d been thinking a lot about the possibilities associated with forgiveness at that time, the way in which reality is regenerated when we make the small, silent decisions to choose to see the best in each other, especially during times of difficulty, or pain. What shines through and becomes insuppressible when you love, or choose to love someone or something; maybe it’s yourself, or someone else, or a situation. And the way that this is a choice, often. And how that feels physically in the body; how it’s kind of like relief, and the surprise of that, like there’s light passing through you somehow; like you become a window for new possibilities.”
