PET NEEDS brush up a new single with 'Toothpaste'

Words: Ellie Ward 

Released last Friday, 'Toothpaste' is the confident new single from PET NEEDS, the Colchester quartet last heard with 'Tracey Emin’s Bed'.

Fusing the agitated dance/punk rhythms of DZ Deathrays to the bolshy rock chops of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, 'Toothpaste' comes from the band's debut album, ‘Fractured Party Music’, out on March 12 via Xtra Mile Recordings.

Written as a letter to his 10-year-old self, the energy-driven track - mixed and mastered by Frank Turner - finds frontman Johnny Marriott ruminating on the deep founded memories we can attach to the most mundane of objects.

"[It] was penned on the M1 on the way home from visiting my mum in Derby," explains Marriott. "She has bought exactly the same toothpaste for years and every time I use it, standing in the bathroom next to my childhood bedroom, it throws me right back to being an anxious little lad trying to make sense of things, haha.”
