Itchy Teeth Q&A

Band name:
Itchy Teeth.

Where are you from? 

Who is in your band?
Xav Clarke, Charlie Hannah, Oli Booker and Big M.

How would you describe yourselves? 
It's hard to describe yourself, but we like to think we're a pop/rock band with a 'retro' vibe - we're not really fans of that word, but people tend to think we are. Hopefully because we write the kind of songs that remind them of great bands from the past!

Who are your main influences musically?
All the big ones!

What do you hope to achieve in music?
To make a difference in people's lives, to be hummed in the morning by someone you've yet to meet, to be the music that someone associates with a special moment. To keep on doing what's in our souls.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
The nights that we put on at our house called 'Live From Itchy Mansions'... it's a monster vibe and a life affirming celebration of those goosebump moments you get when somebody performs a song that hits your soul from only a few feet away.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Being referred to as 'Itchy Feet' - it can be at once hilarious and depressing!

If you were asked to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Well, right now we are all vibing on this song of ours called 'Lady Moonshine' - it's a song about a train that relentlessly ploughs through the night, working hard and keeping moving although nobody notices. I think we can all get a lot of identification with the train...

Where can we listen to it?
We play it at 21:30 into this episode of 'Live From Itchy Mansions'...

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
We are playing at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on September 1st so see you there!
