Alix Page stunned us with this stripped-down heartbreaker written alongside Irish actor, singer, and musician, Mark McKenna. “Pulling Teeth” is a guitar-driven acoustic ballad that brings to mind the work of Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Soccer Mommy – with heartfelt lyrics and a hush-hush intensity throughout the song, it brings a devastating beauty to the otherwise crushing atmosphere surrounding a breakup. About the song, Alix says:
“This song came from a breakup, specifically during one of the final conversations with my ex who used the expression, ‘pulling teeth’, as a comparison to certain aspects of our relationship. I couldn’t get that phrase out of my head.”
