Creeper Have Released A New Single Inspired By Leonard Cohen And Nick Cave
As Creeper gear up for the release of their highly-anticipated new album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void in just one week, the band have unveiled another brilliant – and surprising – single from the record.
The Southampton punks’ latest effort goes by the suitably on-brand name of Poisoned Heart, and hears frontman Will Gould go to entirely new places with his vocals – to brilliant effect.
“This song was the first we had written where we’d experimented with a baritone lead vocal,” he explains. “Inspired by Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave I attempted to sing in a way I had not before, combining this with a country sensibility we had established via a piano and acoustic guitar. Lyrically this song sits in the second act of our narrative, our protagonist is realising what it is to feel for the first time.”
As well as the unveiling of Poisoned Heart, Creeper have also launched a new podcast that journeys into the making of their new record. The Story Of… Sex, Death & The Infinite Void is hosted by Giles Bidder of Mighty Moon Media, and details everything from the band’s onstage ‘break-up’ at London’s KOKO on November 1, 2018 up to now, taking in death, tragedy and mental health along the way. Check it out right here.
