After releasing 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Apocalipstick,’ Cherry Glazerr spent the next 18 months touring the world on their own steam. Between DIY All Ages venues, rock clubs, large festival stages, and massive theaters with some of the world’s best and most beloved bands (The Pixies, Flaming Lips, Slowdive, and The Breeders, among others), the band has really only stopped to work on their follow up, ‘Stuffed & Ready.’ While furiously building the band’s sound and ideas, front person Clem Creevy enlisted Carlos de La Garza to be the band’s studio co-collaborator as they evolved the songs and refined the recordings.
Pulling demonic grimaces with her angelic face, the young Clementine Creevy is, despite everything, fully in charge here. The departure of her bass player and her recent keyboard recruit Sasami Ashworth leaves her in command of a new team. At the age of 22, Clementine already has seven years of skipping school and creating music under her belt. Her Los Angeles trio have now released a third album that confirms their maturity: Stuffed & Ready, after Papa Cremp (2014) released by Burger Records and Apocalipstick (2017) on the label Secretly Canadian. It’s more or less a balanced mix of indie American rock, pop, garage and emo, and Cherry Glazerr has hardened her formula. Her elegiac voice, which is clear on the record and absent on stage, accompanies the ten tracks on which the guitar takes pride of place (Stupid Fish).
Leaving aside the political themes explored in Apocalipstick, Creevy writes about her loneliness and the absurdity of social networks. “I’m obsessed with social networks. I delete Instagram every couple days, so I can remember what it’s like to live my life. It’s such a neurotic place – a string of cries for help.” From this follows the tracks Isolation and That’s Not My Real Life. Still in gestation, there’s no doubt that Cherry Glazerr is one to watch. – Charlotte Saintoin
