LISTEN: "Haxel Princess" -
Cherry Glazerr are excited to share the first cut from their upcoming debut album, entitled "Haxel Princess." The track mixes delicate vocals with super gloomy melodies and punk guitar riffs.
The three-piece band from L.A. took root in 2012 when front woman, songwriter/guitarist 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.
With dreamy vocals and an ethereal guitar, Cherry Glazerr's "Trick or Treat Dancefloor" has become the band's best known song to date, having been featured in a campaign for iconic fashion label Saint Laurent as well as in the television show Arrow.
But the band goes beyond shoe gazey, lo-fi dream pop. Their bare bones style and precise, honest lyrics anchor a diverse sound that ranges from White's Not My Color This Evening, with Sleater Kinney's post punk influences to their break out song, the surf pop "Teenage Girl", which premiered on internationally known style site Rookie Mag and has over twenty thousand listens on Soundcloud.
Cherry Glazerr consistently tour in Los Angeles and Orange County, having played festivals Burgerama, Growlers Beach Goth Party and Jubilee in Downtown L.A. where they shared the stage with Bleached and The Black Lips. Most recently, they played the El Rey, opening for legendary 80's punk band Redd Kross and Mikal Cronin. The band's name is taken from NPR reporter Cherry Glaser, and the band has been invited to visit the NPR station.
Their latest album Haxel Princess will be released on Burger Records on January 14, 2014.
