The soft focus notes and dissonant sounds that clatter into the opening of Dizzy’s debut album on ‘Stars and Moons’ set the tone for a distant dreamy album that’s shrouded in the boredom of youth.

It’s this sense of suburban boredom that the Canadian quartet say got them to this point. While you might be wondering what you did with your teen ennui, Dizzy crafted theirs into these ten tracks that make up Baby Teeth. It’s a record very much of their time, the lazy smattering of electronica and drum loops lull you into this comatose feeling they’re so desperately trying to escape.

Lead single ‘Joshua’ is a gently plucked melody that stings of sentimentality and really lets Munshaw’s calming lilt shine. Her vocals don’t demonstrate much range here and the same can be said for the entirety of Baby Teeth, which is as formulaic as a police procedural, but what Dizzy do, they do well. The production by Damian Taylor (Björk, Arcade Fire) is polished and pristine adding to the glowy nostalgia that this record embraces.

‘In Time’ is like looking back on a hazy memory of nights doing nothing, but looking for something to do and the lyrics: “Cheap wine and expensive glasses, I never quite liked the taste of sadness, but we’ve come to love it in time,” show Katie Munshaw’s talent in making the mundane beautiful. The beats made by the three brothers Alex, Mackenzie and Charlie Spencer are no less sweet. The tight rhythms and twinges of guitar pain are evident of ‘Ghost Limbs’, which sees Munshaw “Reaching for arms and legs, but all you left were ghost limbs”. The rare upbeat track comes in the form of ‘Bleachers’, which sees Munshaw instilling the confidence to let go of inhibitions into lovers and friends.

While ‘sweet’ is a good descriptor for Dizzy they do cut a serious bunch, these aren’t stories of angst or lust, but love and heartbreak. In a way it’s this simplicity that stays with you. Even when the subject matter of a song like ‘Joshua’, which is all about loss, gets complicated, its phrased in a stark and bright light “Had to tell my mother when she found my cold heart lying in the trash bin on our yard”. This forthrightness is endearing and relatable.

Baby Teeth definitely sinks its teeth into you with immediacy, but it’s the slow pace that takes you out of your hectic life and into their chill world. It’s a solid debut that establishes Dizzy as a band to watch out for because, like their beats, they’re sure to linger.
