Sugary Goodness From Sweet Tooth In Their Latest Track ‘Sweet Sick Love’

American rock group Sweet Tooth have recently shared a slice of their Californian sunshine with synth-driven single ‘Sweet Sick Love’.

Formed in San Diego, CA in 2017, the group consists of Trevor Barber (bass guitar, synths, keyboard, vocals), Jacob Schrimpf (lead vocals, guitar) and Kevin Bingham (drums, vocals). Having won the Kaaboo Discovery Tour in 2018 they earned a spot at Kaaboo Del Mar, playing alongside heavy hitters like Robert Plant, Foo Fighters and Post Malone. Since then, the trio have been perfecting their art, churning out well-received tracks like ‘Finger’, ‘Wind Me Up’ and ‘Foreign Man’.


In ‘Sweet Sick Love’ the group departs from their usual rock style- instead, they’ve fused softer elements of indie-rock and alt-pop to create a distinctly dreamy vibe. Calling upon their main influences such as Tame Impala, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Oasis and Arctic Monkeys, the track is driven by mellow guitars and effortless vocals.

On the meaning of the song, the band explained “this song is a metaphor for freedom and unity. It’s about being able to see the freedom and have it always at an arms distance, unable to grasp. It’s about being a symbol when you don’t want to be. You don’t want to be a figurine, you want to be human, and leave as an equal to those you see everyday. To love and to not have to worry about the things that are promised to us, but somehow always taken away.”
