SINGLE REVIEW: Toothcutter (HE DANCED IVY)
SINGLE: Toothcutter // ARTIST: He Danced Ivy
Cut your teeth on a cracker of a new tune from Brissie alt-rock jesters He Danced Ivy with their latest release 'Toothcutter'.
Well-versed in the art of genre-bending and quirky flair, He Danced Ivy have solidly cleaved a cult following through their eccentric heavy leanings and scorching live energy, sharing stages along the way with everyone from Protest The Hero and Polyphia to local prog lords Twelve Foot Ninja, Caligula's Horse and beyond. And now having called Brisbane home since 2016, the blasting quartet have consistently built their wacky wares, this week culminating in the official release of their latest track 'Toothcutter'.
Calling to mind the theatricality of Panic! At The Disco thrown together with a heavy layer à la At The Drive In and the like, 'Toothcutter' is a rollicking, burly beast that angrily wrestles with simultaneous frustration at and desire for addictive cycles and individuality in the 21st century.
Bewitchingly brash, brazen and boisterously bold, 'Toothcutter' finds He Danced Ivy at their utmost kooky and hulking best, and you'll be able to catch the boys in action this August as they ramp up to christen their new sonic baby in Melbourne, Brisbane and Newcastle.
'Toothcutter' is officially available today on all digital stores and streaming platforms. You can check the track out below, and for all other He Danced Ivy info, head HERE.
