White Collar Boy
Crawdaddy, Saturday 13th August.
On 13th August, Crawdaddy welcomes the debut Irish performance from New York act, Creep. With their debut album out later in the year, this show will be a chance to catch the hotly tipped act first. Their performances are highly visual and gripping with them achieving the status of NME’s favourite act from Brighton’s Great Escape Festival in May. Their debut single “Days” features The XX’s Romy, with plenty more collaborations due on their forthcoming album. This is a late night show.
CREEP are Brooklyn based Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard. They have just released their second single and video, “You” featuring guest vocals by NYC twins, Nina Sky. The duo lend unique R&B vocals weaving around each other to the sinister beats, setting the perfect soundscape for the eerily prophetic video directed by Thalia Mavros (Creators Project), where it recently world premiered on Pitchfork.
Their debut single, “Days” featured guest vocals by The xx’s Romy Madley-Croft. A dark atmospheric video directed by Warren Fischer of FischerSpooner was nominated as Best Video at the ImageAwards in Poland. The package includes remixes by Azari & III, Deadboy, Drop The Lime and Soul Clap.
Stay tuned for upcoming new single releases from CREEP which will include collaborations with Holly Miranda, Andrew Wyatt, Kazu (Blonde Redhead), and more.
