TRACK + VIDEO FEATURE PHEM + DE’WAYNE
FEARLESS RECORDS recording artist AMERICAN TEETH has just dropped the video for the latest single “SICK” and it’s a bop with a deeper meaning!
Watch the video, which is a wild ride including skateboarding, silly string, action figures, and more, here.
The video originally premiered last week at an art show in Los Angeles.
Creative collaborations are a driving force in American Teeth’s music and “SICK” is no different! The track features not one but two special guest vocalists — phem and DE’WAYNE. The triple vocal attack and the male-female vocal interplay give this dancefloor-worthy ditty an extra dose of depth and dimension. Both singers appear in the video, too!
“This video was a big collaborative effort,” shares American Teeth. “[Directors] Nas and Erik both have really compelling visual styles, and I was excited to bring them together for this sick take on ’90s-era, kids’ TV commercial look. We wanted to show the theme of addiction through the lens of rabid consumerism.”
“The song is a celebration of accepting my bad habits and owning myself fully,” American Teeth previously said about the song. “We’re all a little ‘SICK’ and that’s okay. This was my first collaboration with phem and DE’WAYNE — I’m a fan of both artists, so it was a lot of fun to work on this one together, along with [producer] Colin [Brittain].”
In other exciting news, American Teeth will make his first festival appearance at Aftershock in Sacramento, California in October.
American Teeth recently dropped a double single, which features “Fix You” and “E-Girl.” It’s available here. The cinematic video for “Fix You” depicted a modern love story and unfolded like a mini movie. Watch it here.

American Teeth is the sonic alter ego of Elijah Noll, who collaborates alongside producer Colin Brittain (All Time Low, A Day To Remember, ONE OK ROCK, Papa Roach) on the songs. Hailing from Portland, Maine but currently based in Los Angeles, he has released a handful of singles across DSPs, which have tallied over a million streams thus far in an impressive feat for such a nascent artist. He was recently named one of Alternative Press‘ 100 Artists You Need to Know.
American Teeth is literally a cyborg — he has a mechanical heart valve, which was installed when he was a teenager to replace a faulty valve with which he was born. His music is much the same — fusing organic sounds and shimmering synths.
