Nell Mescal has shared ‘TEETH’, the latest track to arrived from the rising Irish star.

The new effort is a typically emotion-driven effort from the Maynooth singer that explores the end of relationships, both romantic and platonic.

“TEETH is a song about when you leave the ending of a friendship/relationship too late and there’s no more trust left,” Mescal said. “It’s about the moment where you decide enough is enough”.

It’s the fourth single from Mescal this year and follows on from the likes of ‘Punchline‘ and ‘In My Head’ which arrived earlier in 2023.

Mescal, the younger sister of Oscar-nominated Aftersun star Paul, is also gearing up for her debut tour later this year. You can see her full dates below. Speaking to Rolling Stone UK for our February/March issue, she discussed using her brother as a sounding board for ideas during her writing process. “We’re both too similar, we’ll have exactly the same ideas and when I think it’s not great, I always think he’ll have the same reaction as me, which is daunting!” she said.

She also addressed the effect of Paul’s burgeoning Hollywood profile on her own nascent career. “I’ve been singing my whole life,” she explained. “Paul is incredible and it’s been amazing to see what’s happened for him in the past few years. People might come because of his name, but if they stay then it’s because they like the music.”
