With Keep Up, Melbourne three-piece Loose Tooth have inked their impeccable ear for a hook on a fresh sonic palate; the howling guitars of their first EP Saturn Returns peeled back to foreground the striking to and fro of the band's distinctive vocalists. That's three for three - Etta Curry (drums, vocals), Luc Dawson (bass, vocals, guitar, keys), and Nellie Jackson (guitar, vocals) - long time friends with a democratic approach to both songwriting and influences.
Where Saturn Returns was squared in youthful abandon, the band's debut album is the hangover; recognising a tension between keeping up in a shifting landscape of necessity and staking out your own version of happiness as you wave goodbye to your golden twenties.
Raised on the holy trinity of soul, country and Eddy Current, their debut LP is a living reminder that the B-52's used to be a punk band and the light hasn't gone out on the storied shores of St Kilda
