Teeth and Tongue Eat It Up On "Turn, Turn, Turn" (Official Video) and Perform A Classic Smiths Song

In the wake of recent Aussie indie gifts like Tame Impala and Courtney Barnett Melbourne's based, New Zealand born singer songwriter Jess Cornelius has been making waves too. Teeth and Tongue has been her incarnation since around 2008 not only in solo performances but with collaborative work with her band members. While she provides the songwriting skills, vocals, keys and guitar, (currently) Damian Sullivan provides bass, James Harvey on drums, Marc Regueiro-Mckelvie on guitar and Jade Mcinally on backing vocals and keys. They have just released their 4th album entitled "Give Up On Your Health" on Remote Control Records which I look forward to delving into. Expect a review soon enough but for now check out the video for Turn, Turn, Turn which might turn your stomach a bit but the track is oh so delicious.  I love the tight groove, synths and the sweet attack on the lead guitar flourishes that are so damn hooky and of course Jess's amazing vocal performance. This track just jams so incredibly well. After you come down from this high check out the bands take on a classic Smiths track.
