Teeth & Tongue is the music project of songwriter and instrumentalist Jess Cornelius. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums, Teeth & Tongue has gradually morphed from a solo project into a more collaborative ‘band-like’ affair, with long-time collaborators Marc Regueiro-McKelvie, Damian Sullivan and James Harvey. Their 2016 album ‘Give Up On Your Health’ was named 3RRR Album of the Week and Double J Feature Album, and was nominated for a J Award and The Australian Music Prize.
Now, Jess Cornelius is heading to the USA to focus on a new ‘actually solo’ project under her own name, with material that is more stripped back, personal and lyrically direct. To say goodbye (for a while), Teeth & Tongue are throwing a farewell ‘Greatest Hurts’ party at the Gasometer on August 4th. They’ll be playing songs from all four Teeth &Tongue albums: Monobasic, Tambourine, Grids and Give Up On Your Health.
Joining them for the good times are Loose Tooth and Gregor, plus Venetian Blinds DJs (Phoebe Taylor and Liam Linney).
