Utter monster released by the ever essential Rocket Recordings - home to Gnod, Goat, and Teeth of the Sea. ‘Arrow’ by London duo Gum Takes Tooth is epic in the true sense, with seismic jams blasted straight from the cosmos. This, however, should not imply their sound is airy or escapist, as Gum Takes Tooth are tuned into the turmoil of the present and their maximal sound is a reflection of that.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 23 January 2019

When I was busy falling asleep to the Toy album earlier, this was more like the sort of incendiary kraut/psych rock I wanted to hear. These London people are on Rocket Recordings so I think you'll know what to expect but if not let me explain. This is thrilling and kinetic rhythmic psych rock which utilises the full band format yet takes a more 'electronica' influence in song structure. The most glaring example of them being great is on 'The Arrow' which is a pulverising mass of drums and limbs over which vocals wail and guitars stretch skywards. The make music like this you have to have a good drummer and often the drums take the lead such as on 'No Walls, No Air' which basically just relies on their patterns with little else in the way of melody or construction.   

It's a dark and often gruesome ride through a kind of futuristic ritualistic form of expression. They use human things lest the whole thing starts to become machine like. This hits paydirt on 'Borrowed Lies' where tribal drum patterns are joined by swathes of electronic noise and shamanistic vocals which sound something like the folk-influenced holler of Richard Youngs. An incendiary combination.
