Cherry Glazerr


Secretly Canadian

It’s rare that such a young band with all the potential to make a splash actually pull off a cannonball so early in their career. But that’s exactly what 19-year-old Clementine Creevy and her bandmates have done. With the help of producers Joe Chicarelli (The White Stripes, The Shins, The Strokes) and Carlos de la Garza (Bleached, M83, Tegan and Sara), Cherry Glazerr has put together a rowdy and tight collection of songs that is pure rock and roll splendor.

It’s Creevy’s voice and layered vocal textures that jump from the speakers and grab your attention, but it’s the snappy rhythms, raw energy, punk swagger, and pop smarts that keep it. It’s a picture-perfect formula of raucous rhythms, bouncy beats and rough riffs delivered with an emotional intensity akin to Wolf Alice and The Kills.

The soft/loud dynamic is played with precision and the twists and turns on each of the well-crafted tracks is a thoroughfare of sonic pleasures. Soaring guitar chords and searing leads are tempered with smooth interludes and danceable beats while clever lyrics are served up with Creevy’s enchanting, controlled screaming. (
