Stuffed & Ready, Out February 1st On Secretly Canadian
Watch The Video for Lead Single – “Daddi”:
Cherry Glazerr, the Los Angeles based trio led by 21-year-old frontwoman Clementine Creevy, announces their fourth album Stuffed & Ready, due February 1st via Secretly Canadian. Alongside today’s announcement, they share the lead single “Daddi”, with an animated video that seeks to visualize the song’s searing attack against traditional gender roles. The video was directed by artist Danny Cole. Cherry Glazerr, will play Whelans, Dublin on March 29th 2019.
The two tumultuous years since the release of Apocalypstick, on Inauguration Day in 2017, could have pushed the band toward further explicitly topical commentary. However as Creevy began writing the thirty songs that eventually became the ten of Stuffed & Ready, she found unexpected inspiration by turning inward. Her unblinking honesty in attempt to reconcile confusion and anger in the current political climate gives the album its power and gravity. “I am telling my story of how I feel and where I am in life,” she says. “I’ve felt the need to explain my feelings … not just state them, but search for why I feel the way I do honestly. With Apocalipstick, I was an over-confident teenager trying to solve the world’s problems. With Stuffed & Ready, I’m a much more weary and perhaps a more cynical woman who believes you need to figure your own self out first.”
Now as a three-piece composed of Creevy alongside drummer Tabor Allen and bassist Devin O’Brien (synth player Sasami Ashworth has moved on to her own solo work,) Cherry Glazerr made a first version of Stuffed & Ready early in 2018 with much-loved engineer and musician John Vanderslice. Together they concocted a “very live sounding, self-produced album, which was cool, but wasn’t exactly what I wanted to put into the ether right now,” says Creevy. So they approached Carlos de la Garza, who had co-produced Apocalipstick. “I wanted a producer to push me. I wanted to be questioned, to rip my songs apart and look at their guts and pour myself open again. And I wanted it to sound massive.”
Since the first guitar demos she made in her bedroom at the age of 16, Clementine Creevy has always wanted to make music that connects with people. On Apocalipstick, she did that by telling them what she thought. On Stuffed & Ready, she’s showing them who she really is, a songwriter newly tempered and strengthened by turning inwards.
