“Blending heavy blues, psych and alt rock, Creek put it out there with way above average musicianship and plenty of hair and high notes”
The hairy Creek radlords have ascended from riverbanks Victoria-wide, merging in Melbourne to share their tales of nature, fiction, friction, and the world in which we all exist. Kicking things off as a guitar-centric force, reminiscent of late 60’s/early 70’s southern blues rock, the 4-piece has since diversified their sound with an added blend of psychedelic folk, alt rock, and prog. It’s in the band’s framework to deliver an unforgettable experience, filled with fresh melodies, wild rhythms, and captivating guitars.
After two long years of writing, recording and saving up the cash, they’ve put out their debut LP, ‘The Deep’. The body of work loosely follows the concept of the elusive “swamp siren”, a being who exists deep within the forest, luring human victims in for sacrifice to the land, but also touches upon meteors with wings, drunk love, and psychedelic cowboys (based on a true story!). It's a sonic amalgamation of punchier, guitar-driven tunes written in the earlier stages of the band, and their more recent psychedelic/alternative developments.
The boys have been working the festival circuit, making themselves heard at events the likes of Queenscliff Music Fest, Mojo Burning, Byron Bay Guitar Fest, Folk, Rhythm & Life Festival, and Echuca-Moama Winter Blues Festival. With a sound that can either follow the grain or fight against it, Creek possess a certain adaptability that has appropriated them for a range of different bills. In the past, they’ve cranked it to support Oz icons The Black Sorrows, Chocolate Starfish, and Shannon Noll; and have shed light of their experimental edge when supporting alternative acts the likes of Greek stoner-rock heavyweights 1000Mods.
