Have You Heard? Creeper - Hiding With Boys

Creeper - Hiding With Boys

The foot-to-the-floor summer anthem they always hinted at crafting.

Stepping out of the shadows, Creeper’s second hint at incoming debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ is the foot-to-the-floor summer anthem they always hinted at crafting. Goth make-up cast aside for three and a half glorious minutes, the Southampton group instead grab their punk-rock, Warped Tour influences by the goolies, all double-time drumming and searing three chord runs.

A blast of Californian highway air, it’s Creeper’s hit-the-ground-running moment. A line like ”loving you is killing me” could be a tearjerker in any other Creeper track - in ‘Hiding With Boys’, though, it becomes a defiant note left on the bedside table before a life-changing escape. A skin-crisping ray of sunshine at a time of year when such things feel impossibly far away, ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ looks already set to be one of 2017’s most vital releases.

Creeper’s debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ is out 24th March via Roadrunner.
