Northampton hasn’t really had a high profile in terms of bands over the years (apart from Bauhaus, and I guess by extension Peter Murphy and Love & Rockets) but My First Tooth my very well start to change that.
They’re shortly to release their second single ‘Sleet and Snow’ in April, and it’s a gorgeous piece of indie-pop that restores your faith in human nature and the power of music. (Then again, after my drive home this evening I guess my faith in human nature is easily challenged far too often). The band are front man Ross K Witt, who is joined by Bassist Jo Collis and Drummer Gareth Amwel, and Violinist Sophie Galphin.
They’ve played with the likes of Woodpigeon, and are picking up support across the airwaves on the BBC, Absolute Radio and XFM.
This song is simply brilliant.
