CHERRY GLAZERR: HAD TEN DOLLAZ 7″

February 11th, 2015 | Album reviews

CHERRY GLAZERR
“Had 10 Dollaz” 7”
Suicide Squeeze

Quite a bit has been written about Cherry Glazerr already but if you’ve missed out on the hype, the long and short of it is that they’ve quickly gained a ton of recognition as the hot young trio from Silver Lake (ish) who’ve struggled with the trials and tribulations of juggling high school while carving out a place in the L.A. rock scene and beyond. Their sound is heavy but soft, and distorted yet polished with elements of indie rock, garage, shoegaze, and punk. “Had 10 Dollaz” features catchy lo-fi riffs are tightly blended with lead singer Clementine Creevy’s dreamy, ethereal vocal style and simplistic minimalist lyrics in a way that balances out the raw-garage pop instrumentation and gives it a very refined feel. B-side “Nurse Ratched” is harder and a bit more melodic, and goes into a more heady poetic direction both lyrically and musically. Both tracks highlight how much they’ve grown together in their musicianship and the progress they’ve made as they mature as a band. If this record is an indication of what can be expected from their next full length, then be ready for a real step forward.
