Okay, so I have to be honest as to why I picked this song today. I have had several songs by this band on my list for some time, but I have teeth on my mind today and so I obviously gravitated to this band. Sometimes it is an odd reason that leads me to share a great song! haha

Last week I started having some tooth pain. It was fortuitous timing because I had a regular cleaning scheduled with my dentist on Friday. He took a quick x-ray, did some tests, and immediately referred me to an Endodontist. So, today I started root canal therapy on the tooth. YUCK! It is the very back molar and I honestly did not think I could hold my jaw open one second longer when my doctor said “we will finish for today.” It is a two appointment root canal and “it will get much worse before it gets better.” Well, that’s dandy! You would think if you had a dead nerve you would have no pain … obviously not the case. So, you can see why I was driven to pick a song by Royal Teeth. 🙂

Royal Teeth is a young, five member, Indie Pop band formed in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2010. Nora Patterson is the only female in the group and she uses her incredible voice like a fine-tuned instrument. I am fascinated by the sound she can make – it really could be mistaken for an instrument. Gary Larsen is the other lead singer and he is just fun to watch perform. In fact, the entire sound of the band is fun, lively, and youthful.

The band is really on a run right now. They have been touring like crazy over the last year, they just finished performing to glowing reviews at SXSW, and they will be the guest performer on American Idol this Thursday. Their debut album, GLOW, was released in August of last year and their song, “Wild” has been hugely popular. You can currently get a free download of three tracks off GLOW at NoiseTrade (just don’t forget the tip!). This band is certainly one to watch – I think they are about to explode!
