TRACK OF THE DAY – GAPTOOTH – Good Guys

0

East London singer/songwriter Hannah Lucy who releases music under her “Gaptooth” moniker returns with a brand new EP. The Pillow Fort EP showcases her caustic wit, ear for melody and clever wordplay as she confronts issues that are close to her heart. She describes the EP as “a collection of melodic, guitar-fuelled electro-pop songs.”

We’ve picked ‘Good Guys’ from the EP as our track the day (although it could have been any off said  EP) as it adroitly demonstrates  Gaptooth’s ability to create electronic pop that is instantly catchy whilst shining a light on gender politics – in this instance the perils of everyday sexism in the dating arena. Her trademark razorsharp observations reveal a justified anger  – are certain attitudes endemic? and her sense of exasperation is  encapsulated perfectly in lines such as “I’m tired of all the men who think that they know best /and lecture me on sexism whilst talking to my chest”. Gaptooth’s brand of engaging feminist pop takes no prisoners but does so with warmth, wit and intelligence whilst providing plenty of food for thought.

The ‘Pillow Fort‘ EP is released on 4th March 2016 and can be preordered HERE
