On its own, TEETH’s “U R 1” is a quick-paced journey through layers upon layers of noise, electronics, and distorted vocals. Yet, there is a strong pop sensibility that breaks through the harshness and digital growling, making the track the perfect choice for a third single off the London band’s debut, Whatever.
“U R 1” also makes for some proper remix fodder, particularly in the hands of Brooklyn-based electronic duo Friendly Ghost. They have all but completely removed the noise for the first two minutes of the track, which glides with a shimmering, bouncy vibe. It almost hits tropical levels, but then the bottom drops out and, well, “U R 1” gets taken straight to the dance floor.
You can stream the remix and original version below. The single drops Nov. 21 while Teeth will perform with Tom Vek on Nov. 16 at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. Whatever is out now on iTunes.
