Album Review - Milk Teeth - Self-Titled


In 2016, Milk Teeth wowed us with their grunge-tinged take on pop punk on their debut 'Vile Child'.

It's been a while, but they are back with a vengeance, now a trio with singer Becky Blomfield the only original member left.

Their self-titled second album is brimming with hard-hitting, brutally-honest feminist anthems, raising a voice to women's rights.

On feisty number, 'Transparent', Becky belts out: "I won’t be your silly little girl, cut your claws/ I won't feed your power thirst/ Oh no, one less lie sucked hollow."

In a post-MeToo world and with Harvey Weinstein behind bars, this song which details domineering traits is even more resonating.

'Flowers' is a grunge masterpiece with full-throttle distorted guitars that pack a punch.

Standout track 'Better' sees Becky deliver killer-vocals Alanis Morissette-style, brimming with attitude, and then she takes it to another level, with a piercing scream every now and then.

'Milk Teeth' showcases the sheer resilience of Becky, who two years ago felt disheartened by the music industry and almost called it quits.

A force to be reckoned with, Milk Teeth have risen from the ashes and put themselves firmly back on the ladder, whilst simultaneously fighting every cause in your corner.
