“Like a vision from another world, a view of a parallel universe. Superb pictures of London reflected through puddles open up new perspectives.”
– The Mirror
“Amazing images which offer a new perspective on life in London”
– Evening Standard
“This new series of images exhibit a heightened sense of uninhibited love for one’s city. There’s something about seeing a town through the blurry ripples of a splash of water on the ground that makes it seem all at once magical, haunting, and beautiful. Through the cracks in the streets an image of London’s greatest architectural attractions emerge.”
Sweet Tooth wish to cordially invite you to the launch of London in Puddles – an exhibition of Gavin’s evocative photographic series of iconic landmarks and city scenes:
We will not only be unveiling the limited edition prints but also a new song inspired by our city, performed in a short acoustic live set. We’d love to see you there if you’re in London next week! Kisses, Fleurtini x
I’ve not posted about our new video for a while – humble apologies to those looking forward to seeing it. Exciting things are afoot in the land of Sweet Tooth, so we’ll have to keep our pretty cards close to our chest for just a little while longer… In the meantime, I want to cheekily pique your interest (“a tease? Who… me?”) by sharing with you the newest work by Maximilla (one half of the Belles who filmed ‘Venus’). This “Darlin’” short fashion film, made in collaboration with Lula Magazine’s Leith Clark (as if you couldn’t tell), showcases Orla Kiely‘s Spring 2013 collection, which Kiely stateswas inspired by “Palm Springs, Slim Aarons, summer resorts from the 1960s, and the pool culture of that time period.”
It makes me wish that the briefest bliss of an ‘Indian Summer’ we just enjoyed in London could be endless. I adore the film’s dreamy, sun-lit playfulness. The music by Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone is perfect. And if the whole collection could find its way into my wardrobe sometime soon, I’d be most happy indeed.
Whilst we wait (impatiently!) for the ‘Venus in Hollywood’ video’s final edits, Gavin and I thought we might have a little fun and do some filming ourselves.
Partially as a gift to our friend Nico, for whom this is one of her favourite songs. And partially for Gavin to try out some of his new film-making skills (another string in his creative bow).
This new clip is the result! Sweet Tooth perform the traditional song, ‘Black Is The Colour Of My True Love’s Hair,’ live in our studio. One take, no headphones, spill and all… Vocals by Fleurtini. All other instruments and music production by Gavin Hammond (bass and trumpet were overdubbed immediately after in one take).
Filmed (live), edited and produced by Gavin Hammond.
(PS. The song itself is a celtic traditional which has been covered by luminaries such as Nina Simone, Joan Baez, Esther Ofarim and Christy Moore. We love how it mystically takes on such different qualities depending on the artist singing it, so we’ve tried to put our own ‘Sweet Tooth’ stamp on it with this recording. We’ve decided to give the track away for free as a reward to those who join our mailing list. Do this via this link, or by entering your email address in the text box in the side-bar –>) ♥
