What do you get when you take five ambitious and manic musicians from far-flung suburbs and country towns and lock them in an inner-city Melbourne rehearsal room? You get Creature Fear– a compelling mix of 60’s garage rock and modern atmospherics rolled into a full-bore, shoes-off sound that can still whisper sweet nothings in your ear.
Having independently releasing a handful of captivating singles throughout 2017-2019 (with each earning them multiple spins on triple j), the band is prepped and ready to take 2020 by storm. Poised to release a brand new EP through their freshly inked record deal with Universal Music Group’s “Daily Nightly” label, Creature Fear are assured to display their diverse soundscapes and enchanting energy into one collection of brand new hits.
Renowned for their theatrical, leg-spasming live show which brings back the exciting energy of a 60’s rock n roll crowd wanting to dance the night away, Creature Fear blend the manic old time fun and excitement with the sleekness of modern day music to perfection. It’s a recipe that Triple J has described as “curious greatness,” as well as being coined as one of the undiscovered “hidden gems” in the Melbourne Music Scene today.
2019 proved to be a breakout year for the band, having shared the stage with major acts including Ball Park Music, a run of tour dates with Kingswood, supporting heavy hitters; Boo Seeka, The Delta Riggs & Tired Lion as well as selling out headline shows for the launch of singles “Baby Love Me” & breakthrough gem, “Makeup.” This success led to further milestones in Creature Fear’s history to date which included festival appearances at New Year’s Eve on the Hill 2019, Beyond the Valley Festival 2019 & St Kilda Fest in the summer of 2020.
Showing no signs of slowing down, the band are set to kick 2020 off in style with brand new hip-shaker “Barely Alive” schedule for an April release. Creature Fear brings their signature brand of bright rock in this righteous and confident belter. A staple in their live show, and an out and out fan favourite, “Barely Alive” is positioned to continue where previous single “Makeup” left off – a bright, colourful & irresistibly danceable bop which perfectly encapsulates the bands on-stage liveliness into a radio-friendly ball of energy.
With big aspirations, huge plans and no signs of slowing down, be prepared for 2020 to be the year of Creature Fear.
