MUSIC Pianos Become the Teeth return with new track ‘Charisma’ in anticipation for upcoming album Wait for Love

Published 27 NOV 2017 11:23AM

Words by Callum Sayer




Following on from their last album titled Keep You, the band seem to be continuing with the aesthetic of their previous release, having an emphasis on melodic structure with sombre textures.

Keep You demonstrated a change in direction; a modern approach that the band were attempting to take their sound. Their staple album The Lack Long After showcased an experimental and almost improvisational environment which featured storytelling as a key attribute to the lyrical content, backed by emotional and passionate vocal performances.

However, Keep You opted for a streamlined experience which offers a mature layer to their music and can be seen as an introduction to pop conventions in alternative styles.



‘Charisma’ is a track which teases that Wait For Love may be a further development of the sound that the band had been working on, the upcoming LP might be the record that defines the band's new musical identity, ‘Charisma’ has many of the good qualities that feature on the earlier tracks of Keep You and offers a graceful continuation.

Some fans could be hesitant that the band are not returning to their harsher, post-hardcore style from The Lack Long After.


The sound the group are pushing can actually come across as relatively safe. It is however a convincing and rehearsed approach to songwriting and offers a more listenable experience, allowing fans old and new to catch on to the band's music.

Pianos Become the Teeth are following a similar path that their contemporaries within the New Wave of Post-Hardcore are taking. Artists such as 'Balance and Composure' and 'Title Fight' have taken new directions, embracing more resounding influences within their recent releases, providing a vibrant example of experimentation within the artists limits.


Title Fight’s third album Hyperview, which came out in 2014 featured influences from Shoegaze and noise-related genres, taking their post hardcore sound and embracing nostalgic forms of alternative music. Whereas Balance and Composure's latest release Light We Made focused on core ideas from alternative rock and even indie, creating a contemporary and relevant sound.

Charisma is a step forward in Pianos Become the Teeth’s musical journey, the next step in evolving their current sound, Wait for Love is set to be released February 16th 2018.
