"Beardeds guide to... Liverpool"

The two girls-two lads alt rock formation Wet Mouth (pictured) have set tongues wagging over the past six months with their inspired re-imagining of early 1990s US indie. The female fronted quartet are a pan-global venture, with members drawn from Norway, Canada, the States and the UK.

The four piece source the likes of The Breeders, PJ Harvey, the unfairly forgotten Throwing Muses and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon lead-sung material to give the best bits of early nineties US alt rock a fresh spin.

‘Red Hot Euphoria’, the sound of Gilda-era Rita Hayworth fronting a sleazy cocktail bar band with a riff that unspools like a slinky going down a flight of stairs with a brushed snare providing the foundation is one of several early landmarks.

‘White Light’ is the sound of PJ Harvey duetting with Kim Gordon on a lost gem from Sonic Youth’s Sister while ‘Choristers’ superbly deadpan girl vox and writhing guitars is underpinned by a thudding Kim Deal bassline, a hallmark of their sound.

Presently in the studio, their debut recording is eagerly awaited following the anticipation generated by their gigs, which have come in for serious praise. - Bearded Magazine

"Review from gig with The Phenomenal handclap Band @ Kazimier, Liverpool 28 february"

WET MOUTH open proceedings with some alt. Indie pop-rock circa early 90s. Clad in a bikini top and baggy vest top, Veslemoy (Vocals/Bass) is gruff and sultry, a Norwegian lilt adding to hear sex appeal, and bearing some vocal resemblence to PJ Harvey, Gwen Stefanie and Karen O. Thudding bass patterns drive Choisters and Red Hot Euphoria as distorted guitars crackle and crunch around them. White light is the stand out track that confirms these could be ones to watch.

Wet Mouth: A vibrant new fragrance brought to you by some of Liverpool`s finest imports. A body of off-kilter melodies is coupled with splashes of youthful exuberance to result in a satisfying aroma that refrains from being to obtrusive.
Armed to the Teeth with their Sonic-Youth-Ism, the quartet staple symbolist lyrics to quirky alt.indie music that radiates earnestness. - Bido Lito

"The Louch FC, Lucky Beaches, Wet Mouth Review"

Wet Mouth on first were greatly impressive offering a masterclass in state of the art 1992-93 alt. rock with a modern twist and a slew of Kim Deal esque thudding basslines.

Sourcing The Breeders, the unfairly forgotten Throwing Muses and most predominantly PJ Harvey, the boy-girl quartet’s set peaked with Red Hot Euphoria, a gem of song anchored by a descending riff that evoked a slinky unspooling down a flight of stairs - Purple Revolver
