The Creases are one of the better bands to have come out of Brisbane in the last few years. That’s not fair actually, they’re flat out amazing, crafting a nifty little blend of indie and post-punk infused with pop hooks that is as infectious on record as it is in a live environment. I saw these guys open for DMA’s last year and they blew me away
Coming off the release of debut LP Gradient last year and just shy of kicking off a national tour supporting The Preatures, the band released a brand new song via Pilerats today:
Holy heck, that is up there for one of the coolest songs I’ve heard all year. The production is tighter and more crisp than a pair of skinny jeans fresh through a tumble dryer, really making the guitar work pop, and that synth hook is catchier than the clap.
I don’t want to go as far as to say that I like it better than their original hit I Won’t Wait, because that song ruled much of 2014 for me, but given a couple more listens that might just end up being the case, I’m enjoying Point that much. A simple test, if you dig The Smiths, then you’ll love the shit out of this.
The Creases are supporting The Preatures around Australia from August 27th. Dates and tickets are here.
