Little Brother Eli tease new chapter on Tooth

by liam menzies (@blnkclyr)

Last time we met Little Brother Eli, they were in the running for Best Unsigned Band and teasing a new chapter in their 3 year spanning career. Tooth is the single to mark the start of this evolution and right off the bat, the dreariness of Oceans seems to be all but olbiterated; it’s pretty clear that the act are swapping out moody rock in favor of a more disco friendly affair.

That’s not to say they’ve chucked all remnants of their former selves into the skip. The guitars are still here but this time round they’ve got a noticeable groove to them and front-man Josh is still packing a fair amount of power in those vocals of his which get their own bit to shine on an isolate bridge. It’s a shame that this bridge only seems to fold back into the same chorus as the tension it evokes makes you assume it’s really building up to a chaotic conclusion. As is stands though, Tooth feels like a natural transition for Little Brother Eli whose cautious approach seems to be paying off – it’ll be interesting as well as exciting to see how far the band are willing to dive into these electro heavy waters on future singles.
