My First Tooth

My First Tooth

Comprised of two girls and two boys from Northampton, My First Tooth deliver a punch to the gut and a kiss on the cheek with their brand of indie-folk/alt-country.

A string of singles and debut album ‘Territories’ (released late last year on Alcopop! Records) have garnered considerable praise from critics, including The Word who said: “A full-on blast of raucous folk-pop that’s all hoedown and no slowdown”.

Near constant touring has seen them hone their frenzied, harmony-laden, instrument-swapping live appearances into a show that NME described as “unmissable”. They sing about ships, wild animals, friendships and mountains. They sing together loudly. They sing together quietly. They play like their lives depend on it.

They just might.friendships and mountains. They sing together loudly. They sing together quietly. They play like their lives depend on it. They just might.
