As the rising sea levels has the coastline of LA bracing themselves, Cherry Glazerr are whipping up a devastating storm of their own, aiming to hurl their soft-punk sound all over 2014.
Although not a household name, the band formed in 2012 when front woman Clementine Creevy began making bedroom demos under the name Clembutt. These rough tracks evolved under the mentorship of Lucy Miyaki, of L.A. band Tashaki Miyaki, and were later recorded with engineer Joel Jerome. After adding bassist Sean Redman and drummer Hannah Uribe, the band was formed, and Burger Records released their first collection, Papa Cremp, on tape.
Creevy’s dreamy vocals go further than what we’re used to within shoe-gaze dream-pop bands, at times during album-titled track ‘Haxel Princess’ she’s high-pitched, hostile and unforgiving accompanied suitably by Redman’s hefty base.
To be completely honest, Creevy’s vocals are a unique instrument made entirely of her own individuality, exampled beautifully by album track ‘All My Friends’.
Album Haxel Princess is released next week and can be found here.
