Toronto trio Little Coyote released their debut album The Trouble With Teeth last fall and have given their title track the video treatment which is streaming below.
In this stark video, we watch lead singer Teagan Johnston perform to an empty room and venture out into a snowy day. “[The] winter backdrop served as a reflection on this album release and a farewell to this past winter promoting it,” Johnston tells us. Throughout the video, we also see Johnston flossing her teeth, a pretty mundane task until things get really bloody and the act takes on a whole new meaning.
“The album and this song in particular is really about struggling with a relationship and the fear of losing someone, and letting that fear drive you to places that might actually break that relationship instead of saving it,” explains Johnston. “I was watching my husband flossing his teeth and bleeding one night and I thought it would be really interesting to do a hyperbole of that situation for the video,” she adds.
