Come Play With Me presents... SINK YA TEETH, plus a supporting line-up of all LGBTQIA+ talent from across the UK!
SINK YA TEETH are an English post-punk dance infused duo, formed in 2015.
The band features ex-Girl In a Thunderbolt's Maria Uzor and ex-KaitO's Gemma Cullingford who write, record and produce all of their music themselves from their Norwich homes.
They fuse 80’s and 90’s inspired rare groove and Electronic Dance Music with post-punk bass lines and ferocious vocals, with subject matters focusing on the human experience that everyone can relate to.
Their self-titled debut album, released June 2018 on Hey Buffalo, won 6 Music's 'Album of the Day', and was championed by Steve Lamacq and BBC Introducing, who invited them to Maida Vale to record a session.
In 2019, the duo courageously stepped in to headline Slovakia's Pohoda Festival in front of a crowd of 30,000 people - a defining moment in their career so far.
Their sophomore album 'Two', released in 2020, was released to critical acclaim:
"...Far more than a fine pastiche, Sink Ya Teeth's mix of scruffy nihilism and after-hours house makes for a weirdly compelling proposition" - Uncut
" ...fathoms-deep house, electro and post punk funk underpin Norwich duo Maria Uzor and Gemma Cullingford's second, Uzor's cold fire vocal throwing ESG-shapes on the dancefloor" - MOJO ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"...[the duo] return for a follow-up cut largely from the same cloth, but this time a little rounder and fully realised in its first half, and a little more expansive in its second" - Loud & Quiet, 8/10
"...This album is good. Really good. Awesome in fact" - Electronic Sound

Whether side-stepping rogue rabbit holes in the fields of Guildford’s Pewley Down, exercising her natural curiosity with a stroll along the canal banks of the River Wey or zipping through Austin, Texas on a scooter, ready to wreak havoc on SXSW with her bandmates beside her; the world of Annabel Allum is a Wonderland of magnificent contradictions.
At her most visceral, Annabel is a troubadour for the millennial age, with vitriolic explosions of ferociously grungy guitar and gut-wrenching honesty, deftly attuned to observations of what lies beyond her Lennon-framed lenses. When contemplative, Annabel is an astute poet; praised as much for her words, as for her imagination and sensitivity - a DIY artist in the truest sense.
Long marked out as one to watch, the swell of praise for Annabel Allum from all corners is resounding. Long-time championed by BBC Radio 1, she’s made the daytime playlist, had a live session at the iconic Maida Vale studios as well as performing on their SXSW stage, a festival which she’s now taken by storm twice. Other notable shows include a dream-come-true emotional performance at Reading festival, as well as The Great Escape; tours with Nadine Shah, Sleeper and Beth Ditto have been the perfect way to cut her teeth in the presence of esteemed artists.
Paige Kennedy is an artist and producer from Kent, based in Manchester. Influenced by funk, electronic, dance and indie, their unique brand of alt-pop is hook laced and intriguing. As well as regularly gigging round Manchester pre-pandemic, they've had a 6 Music Recommends track and been played by 6 different 6 Music shows, as well as performing a live session for BBC Introducing Manchester.
Their new EP '4 Degrees' is out now: linktr.ee/paigekennedy
