EP Review: Milk Teeth – Be Nice (Roadrunner Records)

Being hailed as one of the next big things within the pop-rock/punk world, Milk Teeth’s popularity is going from strength to strength. This EP is their debut on a major label. As if that still means anything.

If you’re new to Milk Teeth then opening track, Owning Your Okayness will likely see you make up your mind in an instant. As pop-rocky/punky as they come, its upbeat riffs & peppy chorus seems ripped from a certain early noughties era. With the only real difference between Milk Teeth & the likes of Good Charlotte or Sum 41 is that Milk Teeth have a bit more fire in the hooks.

The vocals of singer, Becky Blomfield are great. She can absolutely sing but it’s a little too familiar sounding. Even if it’s not easy to quite put your finger on just who she sounds like.

Prism’s throbbing bass lines & soft melody doesn’t exactly excite but Fight Skirt showcases just why Milk Teeth are such a beloved band. Letting the energy out, the punk style gives it a real edge & the bouncy sing-along chorus sounds great!

It’s a pity then that Be Nice ends things on such a flat note. It’s a sweet & emotive ballad that initially lacks impact. Then, completely unexpectedly it explodes into a really heavy beat. This part of the song is pretty decent but it’s bookended by overly sugary sweetness that doesn’t inspire.
