Alix Page has collaborated with Mark McKenna on new track, ‘Pulling Teeth’.

The track follows January’s EP ‘Old News’, and was co-written with the Sing Street star. On ‘Pulling Teeth’, she shares: “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.” 

Both of the song’s writers star in the accompanying music video, which was directed, shot, styled, recorded and performed by Alix Page’s close friends in California. Mark McKenna, of Dublin four-piece Milk, was first discovered by Alix through his film credentials.

“Working with Mark was a dream and anyone who knows me knows that Sing Street is my favourite movie of all time,” she explains. “In my experience, the hardest part about breakups is that a lot of times the good memories outweigh the bad, so it was important to me to have the sweet montage moments with Mark on top of heartbreaking lyrics to capture that concept.”
