Introducing ‘Goldeneye’, the debut single by new London five-piece Creatures, set for release this December. ‘Goldeneye’ is a tantalising taster of this new band’s potential. Old School Psychedelia, Film Noir and Spaghetti Western soundtracks are cut and diced, rearranged and reformed into a seductive pop drama - the magic of ‘Goldeneye’ is how it unites all these seemingly incompatible elements with its own individual charm. Born during the summer of 2016, Creatures are brought to you by William Yates, lead vocalist, who signals the return of the out-and-out performer, channelling 1950s crooner style elegant vocals, against heavy and hypnotic desert riffs from William Sherkle, lead guitarist. Ash Moss heads up their pulsing rhythm section on bass guitar and the inimitable Bobby Voltaire provides drums – all accompanied by multi layered, subtle intricacies from Josh Ambler on percussion, organ and rhythm guitar. Creatures’ first live outing saw them handpicked to perform at Rough Trade’s sold-out 40th anniversary celebration in Paris last winter. Performing alongside Temples, the Kettering four-piece were subsequently quick to snap Creatures up as main support for their recent UK and European tour. Early 2018 will see Creatures release a second single and return to the studio to record their debut album. “Harking back to classic 60’s song writing, reminiscent of the last shadow puppets” – Radcliffe & Maconie BBC 6 Music // “...picture a band dreamt up by Wes Anderson. A band of 70s looking cowboys straight out of Westworld armed with psychedelic guitar riffs and all the hair. A band playing songs that could easily sit as a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack.” Northern Exposure
