TUNE Routine Death - Charm Tooth
Routine Death release new single ‘Charm Tooth’ via Fuzz Club on 6th July taken from debut album ‘Parallel Universes’ (out now).
Separated by 7,000 miles, Routine Death is the husband and wife duo of Lisa (Gothenburg) and Dustin Zozaya (Austin), the latter also playing in psych-pop outfit Holy Wave. Their forthcoming debut album offers the perfect introduction into their world of dark, lo-fi vocals and glitchy electronics.
‘Charm Tooth’ is an insatiable cut that perfectly encapsulates the gloomy, minimalist dynamics to Routine Death’s lo-fi pop sound, combining repetitive drum-machine, post-punk basslines and dreamy washed out vocals.
Born out of the distance between the pair is a certain kind of intimacy, the use of cheap equipment - including a five dollar drum machine iPhone app and decrepit barely salvageable synths - and a creative process involving constantly sending tracks back and forth over the internet results in a minimalist noise-pop that shuns overbearing sonic excess.
“Sublime electronic psychedelia” - The Quietus
“Assured psych-pop that matches extreme dark against shades of pure light…a dense but intoxicating experience.” - CLASH
