Southern California’s shoegaze-dream-pop group Cherry Glazerr have a new seven-inch dropping tomorrow (October 28 via Suicide Squeeze). The release features “Had Ten Dollaz,” their Saint Laurent runway show anthem, as well as their brand new One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest–inspired track “Nurse Ratched” as the B-side.
Even with only one member for this LA trio being barely old enough to buy booze, they manage to bring a rare sense of maturity to their fun, lo-fi jams. You can tell that Clementine Creevy, Hannah Uribe, and Sean Redman are taking their band seriously through crisp production and intricate sonic layers, an impressive feat that is most apparent on “Nurse Ratched.” Creevy’s vocal chops are entrancing—part girlish coo, part impassioned moan, she brings a tough and appropriately moody air to the track.
“Had Ten Dollaz” had already garnered the attention of the fashion set after designer (and photographer) Hedi Slimane commissioned the track to be played during his Spring/Summer 2015 Saint Laurent runway show in Paris. “I know that you notice my ways/ And I feel, I feel your gaze,” Creevy shouts, either as a biting recognition of the ever-present male gaze, or possibly just an acknowledgement of the fact that all eyes are on Cherry Glazerr (including KCRW’s local Morning Edition host, Chery Glaser) right now. Either way, the seventeen-year-old and her cohorts are delivering songs with surprising depth for the high-school set and beyond to rock out to.
