“Pulling Teeth” is the urgent new single from Newcastle punk rock band Fast Blood. The track’s painful title and matching lyrics convey the desperate imbalance of helping fading friends with their self-destructive tendencies, only to feel your own compassion and health quickly draining.
This song is at the cutting edge of punk rock. The verses are impossibly dark, with an almost metalcore flair, whereas the refrains and instrumental interludes strong arm us in classic, anthemic punk style. Lead vocals tinged à la Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) plus a final shout along outro drive this heartrending track home.
