‘Vampire Teeth’ is the latest single from New Zealand duo Chores, as they offer up a warm & summery feel-good dance treat that is sure to put a touch of brightness in your day.
Fans of Chromeo are sure to pick up a few of their influences in this one, as Chores pay homage to some of their favourite nu-disco/bloghaus pioneers such as Cut Copy, Miami Horror, Van She and of course the legends, Chromeo.
‘Vampire Teeth’ features, and is co-written by, Eye Sak Mac (aka Isaac McFarlane) – a New Zealand songwriter and vocalist, best known as one half of guitar pop band Two Cartoons and founder of Daddy’s Records.
Sharing song-writing duties with Chores and McFarlane is Alex Wildwood, known for his indie projects Shakes and Beeches. Wildwood also produced the track and has a lengthy and esteemed list of production credits to his name, including Sachi.
This track is infectious and uplifting. It’s warm nostalgic disco-dance grooves are so very easy to enjoy and quite fun to bounce around to as well, but as you start learning the lyrics and delve deeper into the meaning behind the song, a dark cloud begins to dampen the mood.
“‘Vampire Teeth’ is a metaphor about the girl that you wished you loved, but it feels more like you own her. You enjoy her at home but enjoy nothing more than going out and filling her with distractions from the outside world.” – Chores
