The word ‘tremolo’ describes a rapid modulation of volume between low and high. Fittingly, The Creases continue their inexorable ascent as they announce their largest headline tour to date, in support of their anticipated debut LP, Tremolow (August 4). To coincide with the news, it brings The Creases much excitement and pleasure to also reveal the video for ‘Is It Love’.
The Tremolow Tour will see the Brisbane quartet visiting major Australian cities throughout September. With 12 fresh tunes to blast off stage, the shows will be a desirable blend of raucous rock n roll and shining pop – delivered with the honest confidence of a young band on the rise. The Creases are delighted to be joined by dream fuzz artist Hatchie for all dates, who has burst onto the scene with her debut track, ‘Try’.
The Creases teamed up with director Dylan Duclos on the kinky video, in which they perform ‘Is It Love’ in a mistaken location to a bewildered audience…
“We were getting video treatments that were very lovey dovey kinda stories and we were pretty keen on steering clear of that and doing something a bit weird and different to the general theme of the song. Dylan came back to us with the concept of us accidentally playing in an underground BDSM club called “The Choke” that we’d mistake for “The Tote” in Melbourne and we thought it was perfect. We joked about having a gimp trumpet player and Dylan coerced his housemate into doing it which was definitely our favourite part of the day and clip.” – Joe Agius
‘Is It Love’ is the new single off Tremolow. Met with only love, the track premiered on triple j Good Nights and is now spinning on full rotation, plus receiving heavy airplay on communities. It’s also been played on Beats 1 and added to Apple Music’s Best of the Week and Spotify’s New Music Friday and Indie Arrivals.
The Creases recently wrapped up a national tour with Bad//Dreems, and their next shows will be supporting Two Door Cinema Club in July, playing 5000+ capacity rooms. Their previous headline tour launched the single, ‘Everybody Knows’ and was completely sold out.
Tremolow sees The Creases a little older, a tiny bit wiser, undeniably more assured, but no less spontaneous, affable or fun. The record is available for pre-order now on yellow 180gm wax. Head to The Creases’ online store and suss out their limited ‘Is It Love’ tees and totes too.
