TUNE My Crooked Teeth - Something Decent
Something Decent is the new single from Oxford troubadour My Crooked Teeth, a musical project lead by singer songwriter Jack Olchawski. Something Decent is due for release on 3rd July 2020, and is intended as a companion track to the previous MCT single, Something Real, released in November 2019.
Bittersweet and yet catchy and undeniably uplifting, Something Decent is a paean to overcoming insecurity and self-doubt, as Jack explains ““the song is inspired by one of my song-writing heroes John K Samson, and the way that he uses the lyrical concept of conceptualising life as in inanimate object. It’s a plea, a call to action and an affirmation of self believe”. Something Decent is a resolute piece of upbeat alt. country and will certainly be attractive to fans of American artists such Richmond Fontaine and Wilco as well as UK acts such as Nick Lowe.
Since starting out on the open mic circuit in Oxford in 2014 My Crooked Teeth has gradually grown a legion of fans and supporters in Oxford and far beyond. With early support from local musical institutions BBC Oxford Introducing and Nightshift Magazine Jack has since expanded the line up to include a full band compliment of Oxford musical talents. My Crooked Teeth has appeared at prestigious festivals such as Boomtown and Truck Festival in the UK and Tartu Indiefest in Estonia and has shared stages with artists such as Evan Dando of The Lemonheads, Lanterns on the Lake, Lucy Spraggan, Ciaran Lavery and My Darling Clementine. Something Decent was produced in Oxford by Jack with Rob Taylor and mixed by Gareth Gwyn.
