Our favourite band from Sydney Creo are rolling out the title track from their brand new E.P. – Subtitles for X, Y, Z. After unleashing the blistering epic Behind The Beat and Give Me Yours earlier this year, it’s going to be one stellar release for the indy institution!
Recorded by Nathan Sheehy (Dune Rats, Birds of Tokyo, Bluejuice), ‘Subtitles For X, Y, Z’ is a straight-up, hard-hitting, guitar-driven number fit for an arena with its anthemic sing-a-long chorus. The track features cinematic soundscapes and is quite the dynamic rollercoaster; with soft intricate lulls that build into monstrous, chaotic highs.
Front man Jorjee Haman describes the motivation behind the song:
“We all go through the process where age and experience starts to skew the innocence and purity of our natural habits and emotions. I remember vividly the first time I fell in love or even lust, and it was a simple feeling, it just came over me, I didn’t think about the alternatives and possible scenarios, I just accepted the feeling for what it was. Nowadays, I battle with myself, to avoid certain feelings and thoughts because of past experiences. ‘Subtitles for X, Y, Z’ is all about getting out of your own head, fucking off agendas and accepting that those innocent quirks you try to hide need to be loved by yourself, first and foremost.”
CREO’s previous releases have been widely embraced locally by the likes of triple j, FBi, 3RRR, RTR, 4ZZZ, Rolling Stone Australia and international tastemakers Indie Obsessive (USA). Write.Click.Cook.Listen (USA) and The Revue (CAN).
Since their 2012 inception, CREO have continually traversed the countryside selling out headline shows and supporting the likes of Minus the Bear (USA), British India, Last Dinosaurs, Tired Lion, Polish Club, Bad//Dreems and Spookyland.
In the coming weeks, CREO will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Subtitles For X, Y, Z’ and tour dates.
‘Subtitles For X, Y, Z’ will be available via Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and all other good digital retailers on Friday August 18.
