Los Angeles based 60’s Garage Band: “Live for FUZZ, Strive for Authenticity”

The aims in the work of Cherry Glazerr, a fast-rising rock trio fronted by two 17-year-old students from the posh Westside high school Wildwood..
The 10 songs on the band’s debut album, “Haxel Princess,” are concocted from a mix of attitude, silliness and garage-born guitar haze, and Clementine Creevy’s raw, often witty point of view comes through fast. One track mourns the loss of a family pet with anger and confusion; another struggles to maintain a brave face while managing cramps and feeling like “a turd.” Occasionally, Creevy simply dreams of afternoons watching “Powerpuff Girls” and eating pizza.
“I saw so many singer-songwriters who would just play a G and an E chord on an acoustic guitar and sing about the ocean,” says Creevy, who keeps her leather jacket on during an interview on a warm day at a Silver Lake restaurant. “I was like, ‘That is lame.’ I wanted to sing about stuff I thought was cool, like sandwiches.” Hence the song “Grilled Cheese,” a slow-strutting number in which the humble lunchtime fixture becomes means for a taunt.
The everyday directness of Creevy’s songs caught the attention of Orange County’s hot underground rock label Burger Records, which released Cherry Glazerr’s debut earlier this year. An initial run of about 2,000 vinyl albums is on the verge of selling out, and a second CD pressing is on the horizon.
