PREMIERE: Bumbasee Release New Single “Tooth & Nail”

Music extraordinaire Bumbasee has return with the release of his new single “Tooth & Nail,” a song that shows Alex expanding on the alter-ego of aggressive animalistic songwriting and production. In it, he plays with intimidation and is exploring something outside of himself.

About the song, Alex comments:

“‘Tooth and Nail’ is an attitude song. It’s about being an animal and puffing your chest out, repeated like a mantra. It’s all over the place with vocal layers but lyrically simple. I only used vocals for all the melodic elements and tried to twist them into something strange and aggressive. The 808 is pitched higher than I would normally go, but something about it made the track feel more raw. Rawr.”


After a series of late-night sessions with no intention other than to create, a sound began to emerge. A refreshing but also unrefined vibe that felt aggressive but with an endearing smirk. This music seeks to break traditional rules of songwriting and challenge genre, expectations, and a bit of common sense.

It is the release of pent up creativity and the animalistic id that is inside all of us, (although sometimes the id just wants a burrito). Taking from this ethos, Bumbasee is a musically rebellious voice demanding we never stop challenging the status quo.  Dexterously weaving influences from hip-hop and electronica innovators, Tirheimer invites you to open your ears to the raw, gritty sound and open your eyes to what’s hidden beyond the matrix of prescribed songwriting.

And to explain the name, Bumbasee is a fake word for Parmesan cheese, invented as a strange joke by the Tirheimer family to demonstrate the power of misinformation, and to show that nobody checks to see if the parents are crazy before letting them take a baby home.
