Their 2018 debut album, How Fleeting, How Fragile (Long Branch Records), received international critical acclaim and singles like “Elusive Reasons”, “When I Meet Death” or “Vibrant” have since been streamed millions of times.

Finely-crafted and fully mature songwriting belies the quartet’s youth – a foursome who met in music college and who in their short time together have already toured as far afield as Ukraine. Elements of prog metal in the vein of TesseracT and The Agonist meld with stadium-filling anthems not far removed from Alter Bridge, Trivium, and Jinjer.

Originally hailing from Bahrain, Iman is a London-based multi-instrumental alternative musician and songwriter. She writes honest, raw and relatable lyrics over a mixture of Shoegaze and Progressive Alt Rock style riffs based upon a combination of her own personal experiences and general observations of life; often with a heavy dose of metaphor.
Born from a musician’s desire to re-envelope their life in the heaviness that is metal and to refamiliarize with a conduit that could be considered detrimental amidst today’s destructive society, the gritty powerhouse that is TEETH emerged from the sludge of a foul generation.
While many bands are enslaving themselves to the algorithm, TEETH simply allows their music to be a conductor for the inevitable pain and violence that is reality.
