London’s a musical hub of innovation. Within, you’ll find a healthy dose of accessible music that’s broadly appealing, while also fostering some niche musical styles. On June 23, you can see the next generation of London’s music scene take to the stage for Takeover Music Fest – a free concert hosted by London Music Office.
The bill is filled with notable local up-and-comers, each deserving of their place on stage. Many of the performers are Fanshawe Music Industry Arts students and graduates. Among them are the buzz-worthy local art/prog ensemble, Sweet Toothe.
Many of us familiar with metal are largely aware of the endless list of sub-genres that comprise the genre in its entirety. Much of these sub-genres carry that intense, aggressive sound mixed with heavy distortion, punishing vocals and galloping double kick. Be prepared for a paradigm shift with Sweet Toothe! Self-described as ‘mystical metal’, the London-based four-piece boasts a totally unique, chill, auteur sound which challenges the traditional characteristics of both art rock and metal.
The group is fronted by local singer/songwriter, Molly Roach, on vocals and guitar. She is joined by Jon Midence on lead guitar, David Goodman on bass and Mitchell Clark on drums. Inspired largely by art rock and progressive rock, you can find Sweet Toothe somewhere between the frictions of late 90s-early 2000s alt rock and traditional heavy metal with their incorporation of sped up rhythm sections and hearty double kick. It wouldn’t be fair to compare them to any familiar acts within those two genres because Sweet Toothe have forged a sound entirely their own.
If you’re looking for a band that’s energetic and unique, pretty and heavy, look no further than Sweet Toothe. They’ll be opening up the Anne Eadie Stage at 5:30pm, so don’t miss out!
Takeover Music Fest is a festival organized by youth volunteers tasked with developing the event, seeking talented artists and bands, promoting the concert, and working on the day of event. The festival seeks to give young local artists a platform to showcase their work to a large, diverse audience.
