BEASTS – CREATURE
Beasts’ new single Creature offers a tantalizing glimpse into the band’s upcoming debut album, blending intoxicating vocals, lazy riffs and sharp wit.
In their short history, the Bristol/London three-piece have already made their mark, with Radio 1’s Daniel P. Carter premiering their first two singles, Annie and My Girl Is a Serpent, which were subsequent played by BBC radio presenters Zane Lowe and Phil Taggart. The band aren’t strangers to life on the road either, with a slew of recent festival appearances including 2000 Trees, Isle of Wight Festival, Download Festival, Reading & Leeds, Rock for the People in Europe, and The Great Escape.
Their impressive list of accolades comes as no surprise, given the band’s masterful songwriting and fresh sound. Joe Mallory-Skinner (guitar and vocals), Tom Wood (drums) and Loz Fancourt (bass) cite influences across the spectrum of 90s grunge and alternative, with their sound further sculpted by veteran producer Jaime Gomez Arellano.
