Brighton art-rock quintet Youth Sector are certainly making waves with their tracks. As featured on BBC Radio 1’s Indie Show as well as blogs across the globe, Youth Sector draw inspiration from the late 70s and 80s era of funk. Returning with recent single ‘Teeth‘, the single feels like CHIC met up with Talking Heads, got drunk and created this addictive track.
Commenting on the track, which is penned with one of the most memorable bass lines of 2020, the band said: “‘Teeth’ sees us continue to push into more rhythmic territory and embrace the influence of funk bands Parliament and Tower Of Power, with its constant danceable groove punctuated by wonky guitars throughout. Lyrically the single explores the sinister magnetism of untrustworthy people and the way they can enter the lives of those vulnerable to their charms.”
Vibrant and bold, the track feels slightly courageous in a world of mainstream music but comes across as one of the best singles of last year.
