“Blending heavy blues, psych and alt rock, Creek put it out there with way above average musicianship and plenty of hair and high notes”
Ascending from riverbanks Victoria-wide, Creek are four hippie-looking blokes with Telecasters, on a mission to make some noise in this world on which we all exist. Kicking things off in 2016 as a guitar-centric force, reminiscent of early 70’s southern blues rock, the band has since tweaked their sound with layers of psychedelia, folk, and prog. Renowned for their wild rhythms, soulful lyrics, and captivating guitars, it’s in the band’s framework to deliver an electrifying live experience.
The boys have been working the Australian festival circuit, making themselves heard at events the likes of Queenscliff Music Festival (Vic), Mojo Burning (Qld), Byron Bay Guitar Fest (Nsw), Folk, Rhythm & Life (Vic), and Echuca-Moama Winter Blues (Vic/Nsw). With a unique sound that proves difficult to categorise within the current rock spectrum, Creek have seen their way onto a wide variety of line-ups. They’ve cranked the amps to support acts the likes of Greek stoner rock heavyweights 1000Mods, Israeli instrumental-rockers Elephant Hive, hard-hitters King Of The North, and Ezekiel Ox; and national icons Shannon Noll, The Black Sorrows, and Chocolate Starfish.
In November 2019, the group released their debut LP ‘The Deep’, which earned airplay on PBS 106.7 FM, and grabbed the attention of media publications Beat Magazine, Happy Magazine, and The Age’s Spectrum. Recurring themes throughout the album loosely interpret the legend of the "Swamp Siren": a being who exists deep within the forest, luring human victims in for sacrifice to the land. It’s a sonic amalgamation of punchy, fuzz-driven riff rock, and alternative overtones.
‘Creek have grown and matured over the years. Their evolution is evident across the album, which combines new and older singles.’ —Beat Magazine.
Emerging from the Naarm/Melbourne corona virus lockdowns of 2020 with a whole new perspective on life, the band delve deep into the roots of human connection for their upcoming two-part EP, ‘Bluestone’.
