Liberation Music is thrilled to present the first taste of new music this year from The Creases. Today marks an extra special day for fans, with the much-loved Brisbane band also announcing a run of east coast tour dates for July.
Premiered by triple J just moments ago, the new single sees The Creases continuing to innovate, pushing their sound to exciting new heights. ‘Impact’ is unapologetically and joyously loud – layered, swirling guitars and vocals drenched in a nostalgic symphony of brass and strings – and marks a bold step forward for the outfit, as they refine their signature sound.
Recently taking out the QMusic Award for Most Promising Male Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Joe Agius demonstrates his effortless ability to write enthralling and charismatic tunes that you just can’t help but love.
“I wrote the foundation of Impact while staying down on my dad’s farm last year after a lot of heavy listening to early 90s UK acts such as Happy Mondays & Blur. It was recorded down in Melbourne with Malcolm Besley of Northeast Party House and features Liam McGorry of Saskwatch & Dorsal Fins on brass. The song talks about the struggles to keep a balanced lifestyle and relationship with people, work and sleep when everything you do creatively requires you to be unbalanced. It’s been a highlight for us to play live for a while now so we’re super excited to finally have it out in the world.” – Joe Agius
The song follows previous single ‘Point’ (and Christmas ditty ‘Dear Santa Claus, I Want It All’). ‘Point’ won rotation at alternative and community radio, and earned the band support slots alongside The Maccabees and The Preatures, along with their own sold out national tour.
‘Impact’ itself is just begging to be taken to the stage. Luckily, The Creases will be hitting the road in July for a three-date east coast tour. They’ll be performing at some choice venues in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. With a blistering live set and cheap-as-chips ticket prices, this is definitely one party you can’t afford to miss!
