Cherry Glazerr return with the mature 'Daddi' from their new album

Cherry Glazerr‘s last album Apocalipstick was an absolute blast of a record, that saw the Clementine Creevy-led act exploding into a more well-rounded sound. They’ve now announced the follow up: it’s called Stuffed & Ready and comes out on February 1st through Secretly Canadian. Speaking about the development between records, Creevy says: “With Apocalipstick, I was an over-confident teenager trying to solve the world’s problems. With Stuffed & Ready, I’m a much more weary and perhaps a more cynical woman who believes you need to figure your own self out first.”

That weariness is certainly audible in lead single ‘Daddi’, where a relatively restrained Cherry Glazerr weave through an bruised blue, electronics-imbued verse, Creevy asking all sorts of worrying and untoward questions. This turmoil comes rocketing to a head in the chorus, where the band gives us their trademark guitar detonation, but this time the message is clear and confronting: “don’t hold my hand/ don’t be my man.” It’s a coercive sign of what’s to come on Stuffed & Ready.

‘Daddi’ also comes with an animated video, created with Danny Cole, the creative director for Portugal. The Man.

Cherry Glazerr played an amazing set at Nottingham Dot to Dot Festival this year, that this concert was so insane and so much fun . If you were not there please check Cherry Glazerr out if you have’nt heard of them before! . a truly wonderful set . Celebrating the release of their third album earlier this year, despite the fact that lead-singer Clementine Creevy is only 19 she came crawling onto the stage on all fours you knew then this was going to be something a little bit special, Cherry Glazerr are from Los Angeles, they arrive on the cusp of something big. Musically, it’s all slightly grungy early-mid 90s riffs, female empowerment lyrics and youthful energy.

Their album “Apocalipstick” is one of the best albums of the year.

Los Angeles rockers Cherry Glazerr, are led by 19-year-old singer Clementine Creevy, the band signed to Secretly Canadian for the release of their latest album Apocalipstick. . Clem, a teen Queen with a headstrong resolve like her hero Patti Smith and a cartoon laugh like Muttley the dog, dreamed up Cherry Glazerr in her LA bedroom alone and is perhaps more capable of figuring a music career out than anyone who attempts this treacherous life path. And yet, she carries herself very lightly. “This one’s going to be a flop!” she jokes, here to discuss the newly lined-up trio’s second album, Apocalipstick. It’s every bit as epic, funny, life-assuring, doom-defiant and flaming fire as that title sounds. Now bolstering Clem’s vision is the loud-in-every-way-possible drummer Tabor Allen and the level-headed but bad-ass, multi-instrumentalist Sasami Ashworth who plays synths and notably French Horn (Clem is still scheming on how to incorporate that into Cherry Glazerr’s sound). The first time the new trio all jammed together minds were blown. “My world was rocked,” recalls Clem. “I’d never played with someone who was technically that good before. It made me think, Man I gotta really step my shit up!”

Cherry Glazerr

Society would deem a prodigious girl can’t be in a progressive rock band while also being in complete control of its creative vision, business plan and social messaging. Society is wrong. Clem, a 19 year old teen Queen dreamed up Cherry Glazerr in her hometown L.A. bedroom alone and is perhaps more capable of figuring a music career out than anyone who attempts this treacherous life path.

Back in 2014, much-loved Californian imprint Burger Records released their intoxicating debut Haxel Princess and Suicide Squeeze released the Had Ten Dollaz 7”. On Apocalipstick the band worked with “rock ‘n’ roll wizard” Joe Chicarelli (White Stripes, The Shins, The Strokes) and Carlos de la Garza (Bleached, M83, Tegan and Sara). With their help and the band’s newfound self-discipline and motivation, Cherry Glazerr has evolved into a wildly complex, hugely guitar heavy, and unapologetically loud machine. Its vintage riot girl stuff via Pixies-style bittersweetness and big angular riffs.

Their new single, ‘Told You I’d Be With The Guys’ documents Clem’s realization that she needed to establish solidarity with other women and stop being a “lone wolf.” “Sexism is so ingrained in me, I can often feel that men are the only ones who can help me socially, economically. The most important thing in my life is that I’ve realized I need to work for solidarity. That song’s both hopeful and dismal!” she laughs. Clem still feels like she constantly need to prove herself. “Women work from behind their oppression. In order to make good art you need to be emotionally free and sadly, not a lot of women are able to do that. That always puts a fire under my ass.”

Cherry Glazerr was dreamt up by Clementine Creevy at age 15 in her LA bedroom. Having released their debut, Haxel Princess, on much-loved Cali imprint Burger Records and the scorching Had Ten Dollaz 7″ on Suicide Squeeze, the band has now evolved into a wildly complex, hugely guitar heavy, and unapologetically loud machine. The catchy hooks in Cherry Glazerr’s songs offer a counterpoint to the purposeful social commentary and incisive humour which has been ever-present since the band’s formation. Bolstering Clem’s vision is the loud-in-every-way-possible drummer Tabor Allen and the level-headed, nevertheless bad-ass, multi-instrumentalist Sasami Ashworth.
