This fairy tale just became a blockbuster.
To say Creeper have burst through into the light would be somewhat of a misnomer. This bunch stick in the dark spaces, where their stardust shines the brightest - but the point remains the same. With their debut album announced, ‘Suzanne’ is the Southampton gang breaking cover. And it’s glorious.
Every fairy tale sparkle feels like it’s finally about to be realised. Where rough edges once showed promise, they’re now smoothed to perfection - in the best way. There’s still the heart, still the same passion, but the ambition that promised to soar has taken flight.
Rumbling through breakneck verse into euphoric chorus, the usual markers are there - the cult like devotion of that other band
among them - but Creeper have their own identity, inhabiting their own home-spun world. More than just a band - there’s a special kind of magic woven through their DNA. The journey is on. Grab that hand and aim for the stars.
