    When We Met
Teeth & Tongue began in 2009 as the musical project of songwriter, singer and instrumentalist Jess Cornelius.
Her debut album ‘Monobasic’ led to Triple J rotation and coveted slots at the Falls and Laneway Festivals. The project has since alternated between solo and band formats, using sampled drums and walls of layered vocals, and is now a collaborative and dynamic five-piece live band.
Teeth & Tongue’s 2014 album ‘Grids’ was named RRR FM Album of the Week, Double J Feature Album, Beat Album of the Week, RTR FM (Perth) Feature Album, Radio Adelaide Feature Album, and received four star reviews in The West Australian, The Herald Sun and The Music. It led to appearances at Meredith Music Festival, Boogie, White Night, MONA and NGV Friday Nights, and was nominated for three The Age Music Victoria awards.
Last year Teeth & Tongue was invited to tour the country with Courtney Barnett and this year sees the band perform at Darwin Festival and GOMA as well as a string of headline shows. Under Teeth & Tongue Jess Cornelius has performed at SXSW and CMJ Music Marathon in the USA, on SBS’s Rockwiz, toured the USA and Europe, and once spent four weeks making an EP in public at the National Gallery of Victoria.
In 2015 Jess was invited to be a resident at Nes Artist Residency in North Iceland, where she worked on material for ‘Give Up On your Health.’
