Beth Jeans Houghton - Sweet Tooth Bird


Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves Of Destiny are set to release the giddy but murderous 'Sweet Tooth Bird' as a single on 20th February 2012. Her dazzling debut album, 'Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose' will be released on 6th February.

Clocking in at a brisk 2 minutes 14 seconds (including psychedelic breakdown and trumpet fanfares) 'Sweet Tooth Bird' is about sabotaging a relationship that's too good. The video sees Beth wake up in a room full of plants and don a gas mask and protective clothing to venture outside, where she is accosted by a group of men.

Her debut album 'Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose' was created with producer Ben Hiller (Blur / Elbow / Depeche Mode) and introduces one of the most self-assured new bands of the year. The blend of psychedelia, glam rock and chain gang folk is quite unlike anything else you're likely to hear in 2012.

To mark the release of the album, Beth Jeans Houghton will be taking her band, The Hooves Of Destiny, on a canter around the United Kingdom. For anyone picturing a girl and a guitar, think again - this is a full band performance with Beth plus Dav Shiel (drums, vocals samples) Rory Gibson (bass, vocals), Ed Blazey (guitar, trumpet, vocals) and Findlay Macaskill (violin, vocals). Collectively, they're The Hooves Of Destiny - a crack unit recruited from Beth's native North East.

Fans are told to expect the unexpected: Houghton's performances are guaranteed to be different, often unpredictable and always entertaining. Her between-song chat gives an eye into the slanted world explored further in her inspired lyrics.
