If you like your pop music to be bright, shiny, sugary and carried along by the crystalline vocals of someone who burns with the audacious fire of youth, then Royal Teeth is for you.
The college-aged, six-member Lafayette group released its debut full-length Glow
in September, and the album lives up to its word. Every song is an anthem - a brisk 8 a.m. wake-up call commanded by lead singer Gary Larsen and given wings by back-up vocalist and harmonizer extraordinaire Nora Patterson. Swirl in the choruses filled with "whoa, whoa, whoa" and a variety of hand-claps and imagine Royal Teeth on a big summer festival stage - which is probably where they're heading.
