Teeth & Tongue have released a music video for their new song 'Cupcake'.
Jess Cornelius has spent the past two months at the Nes Artist Residency in Iceland
working on new material. Originally recorded in Melbourne, 'Cupcake'.
"The recording needed vocals and a few extra bits, but by that point I was in Skagastrond
surrounded by miles of ice and snow, and my shared concrete work space wasn't really
appropriate for recording. I did a call-out to the Icelandic villagers for foam and cardboard,
and managed to build a really ugly-looking vocal booth, then took over the residency
assistant's office for a few days to track the vocals and synths. Jade recorded her backing
vocals at home in Melbourne and sent them to me in Skagastrond, and I sent the whole lot
back to Melbourne to Gareth Parton for mixing".
She also decribes the production process of the music video for 'Cupcake.'
"I met a Canadian graphic novelist there, and she'd taken some similar footage, so we put it
together and made
projections of it. She set up her camera and filmed me with the projections against the wall of
the studio one evening,
with all the other artists doing their own work in the background as I mimed along. Then I
sent a great pile of footage back
to Sunny Leunig in Melbourne for editing".
Teeth & Tongue hit the road later this month supporting Courtney Barnett on her national album tour. All the details below.
