4 days ago The Creases dropped their latest album 'Tremolow' via Liberation Music and this week it is our album of the week. The word ‘tremolo’ describes a wavering in a musical tone, a rapid modulation of volume between low and high. It creates a feeling of freefall, of weightlessness; it’s thrilling and terrifying at the same time. Which is exactly what resonates through The Creases long awaited debut record 'Tremolow''. In the four years that they’ve been a band they’ve seen enough rapid highs to know a thing or two about the feeling.
The album was recorded over the course of a month in Melbourne, Recorded and produced by Malcolm Besley (Northeast Party House, City Calm Down), the album also features backing vocals by Ali Barter on ‘Were Young’, and brass & strings from members of Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins and Hollow Everdaze. Most importantly, these sessions let the four members of The Creases spend quality time together like they rarely had before.
“We’re in Melbourne a lot but never for extended periods of time,” says Agius, lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter. “It's important for us when we’re recording to be away from distractions and everybody we know, so shacking up together in an AirBnB for a month there definitely had some kind of influence. It was probably the closest time and most fun we've had together.”
Agius say's their time together definitely hasn't been easy, “This band kinda went from zero to a hundred very quickly in a lot of ways when we started,” says Agius, “I think most other groups would have broken up several times over dealing with the amount of stress and drama that this band has endured, but I think we work and play best together when there is that sense that it could easily just fall apart at any moment.'
The release of the album will see the band go on tour through September.
