"Possessing transcontinental roots, Newport-via-New York indie rock act Silverteeth aren’t your typical band. Launched in the heart of Brooklyn’s late-’00s DIY scene by Charlestown, Rhode Island native Bill Bartholomew and Gabriela Rassi of Goiânia, Brazil, Silverteeth recently established their home base in the City By The Sea. Their unique sound fits perfectly with the eccentricities of Newport’s tiny — but talented — music scene. It’s guitar driven music with a dose of pop and a heavy amount of grit evocative of alternative rock’s golden era in the ’90s. Their debut self-titled EP is an excellent example of that and it’s being premiered on Vanyaland today. The EP gives off the vibe of reflection and transition to go with the reality of Silverteeth moving to a new environment after being based in the Big Apple for nearly a decade. There’s also a rich soundscape abundant from track to track and there’s never a moment of boredom or redundancy. Emphatic tones and hard-hitting riffs are the backbone of the band’s sound and the ears will be invigorated. The end result encompasses one of the best local recordings to come out of the Ocean State this year." - VANYALAND premier JULY 7, 2016

"Led by NYC scene veteran Bill Bartholomew (guitar and vocals) and Brazilian bass player Gabriela Rassi, Silverteeth is an exercise in stripping pop of anything superfluous to let the melody and the songwriting shine. Operating in a strictly DIY fashion, this is one of the few bands able to land gigs both at Bowery Presents' venues and at Brooklyn DIY spaces like Palisades. We should hear some new material from them soon, since they were recently invited to record a few tracks at Converse's Rubber Tracks." - THE DELI MAGAZINE BEST OF NYC 2016

Track Name: Burning Planet
This burning planet
Rifling their sound as one
The worlds within it
Carrying themselves so far

I'd forgotten
Just how far the skyline seems
These enigmatic pieces of me


They all make the language of the world
They all make the language of moving parts
A well within my mind
All eyes on us

I went all out
Waited for the sky to fall
Its like the moment came and went

Track Name: I Want
The only thing I feel from this pace
Exactly what I fought so hard
What goes through your mind
Three hours time
The energy within my light

At least I run this paperback world
Go in circles one day at a time
Buried by the bone
You are scarred
I lay here in a cage of white
When I want

I called you from the tabletop
Its only gonna burn out if you let it go
If you let it move on
Coming back to life
In time for another
Cold, rainy winter day
When I want

I came in like a bat out of Hell
Its all a dance of the night
We make up as we go
Hollywood invites me to read
Off a prepared menu screen
Starving and upside down
A couple dozen people outside
A couple dozen people in line
They all know what I want

I flew in from the reaches of space
The motherfuckers on the lamb
Starving and into you
I blew it like a lost attitude
I only ask 'cause I can
What little left to lose?
A couple dozen people in line
Outside The Mercury Lounge
I don't give a good God damn
A couple dozen people in line
A couple dozen people inside
They all know what I want.
