The Creature Comfort Release New Single
Illuminated psych-rock band, The Creature Comfort, share their new single ‘Alone By Your Side’.
In just over 3 minutes The Creature Comfort give us a brilliant demonstration of off-kilter punk-pop perfection that calls to mind an unholy marriage between The Fall and Violent Femmes and provides an insight into why other bands and scenesters get so enthusiastic about these wayward offspring of the Manchester scene.
Singer, Le Jeune recalls how the inspiration for ‘Alone By Your Side’ came during a wet and blustery walk in the hills between Manchester and Leeds: “There was something about those massive immovable rocks battered by the elements over millions of years that led me to a meditation about time’s effect on some unrequited, tragic love and whether that fire can still be ignited – or, indeed, whether there can ever be release from it – maybe through some witchy love ritual or exorcism”.
The band bring melodies that never fail to stick, sonic intensity, surreal lyrics with universal appeal and full-on rock’n’roll performances. From deep-fried psychedelic soul to bubblegum power pop, these sounds come from the edge.
