Listen: ‘Behind the Beat’ by CREO

Sydney represents with this new track from quartet CREO. A moody, atmospheric, explosive, emotive and ambitious class act that heads out as the first taste from their forthcoming E.P. Subtitles For X, Y, Z. This is one attention commanding song and you should most definitely check it out! This is a five starrer from me, gang!

Go, Aussie, Go! BRING IT ON!

After a successful 2015 off the back of releases, “Suay” and “Light It Up”, CREO spent majority of 2016 working with long-time friend/producer Nathan Sheehy (Birds of Tokyo, Bluejuice, Dune Rats) on what would become the Sydney quartet’s upcoming EP titled ‘Subtitles for X, Y, Z’.  A record that the four piece say is not afraid to flirt with nostalgia, whilst establishing the notion of hopefulness for whatever the next chapter may be, “Behind The Beat” is the first taste of why the Sydney based rockers have been in hiding for the best part of a year.

“This song is very autobiographical in nature and chronologically recounts mine and the band’s journey. It’s an insight to how we look back on the fuck ups, the wins, and empathises with nostalgia. That’s what ‘Behind the Beat’ is about, reflection, reminiscence and continuing doing what you love to do.” – Jorjee Haman (vocals)

Building a reputation for being an incredible live act, CREO’s ability to translate their meticulously textured indie-rock sound into a ferociously loud and energetic free-for-all is one of the key elements that made people sit up and take notice. After gaining some support from national broadcaster Triple J and countless community stations around the country, CREO toured nationally supporting the likes of British India, Tired Lion, Bad//Dreems, Last Dinosaurs and Spookyland, and sold out all of their respective hometown (Sydney) shows.

“Behind the Beat” is the first taste of the Sydney four piece’s upcoming EP. Jorjee Haman’s poetic, almost spoken word melodies intertwine with the delicate yet brazen guitars provided by Carlos Romanos, eventually building in true CREO fashion to a riotous-like explosion of emotion and sound, amazingly without ever losing its sense of intimacy and vulnerability.
