Cherry Glazerr

 

Cherry Glazerr is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2013. The current lineup consists of guitarist and lead vocalist Clementine Creevy, bassist Devin O'Brien and drummer Tabor Allen. The band's sound has transitioned from lo-fi, garage-rock in their debut release Haxel Princess in 2014, to a more polished rock sound, with elements of grunge punk and new wave, in their sophomore release Apocalipstick in 2017.

Formation and early years (2012-2016)

Cherry Glazerr originated as 'Clembutt': a solo project for then-15 year old vocalist and guitarist Clementine Creevy, who wrote, performed and uploaded a small catalogue of songs onto Soundcloud in 2012. The tracks were discovered by Burger Records co-founder Sean Bohrman, who released them as a tape titled Papa Cremp in 2013. In 2013 Creevy was joined by her high school friends Hannah Uribe and Sophia Muller, on drums and vocals respectively, and boyfriend Sean Redman, who she met at a summer workshop at Musician's Institute, on bass. The band takes its name from NPR Reporter Chery Glaser. Cherry Glazerr began performing with a number of prominent bands and festival scenes in 2013, including SXSW, Beach Goth, at the El Rey with Mikal Cronin and Redd Kross, and alongside Fidlar at Burger Records' annual Burgerama festival, where they captured the attention of fashion icon Hedi Slimane.

In 2014, the band - now a trio following the departure of vocalist Sophia Muller - released their full-length debut Haxel Princess on Burger Records, featuring percussion by Joel Jerome. The album, described as "concocted from a mix of attitude, silliness and garage-born guitar haze" was praised for Creevy's unique vocals - alternating from dreamy to high-pitched, hostile and unforgiving - and for its cynical, witty lyrics.

During this period, the band underwent a number of additional lineup changes. In 2015, Uribe left the band in pursuit of other artistic endeavors. In 2015-16, Creevy and Redman were joined by two other musicians: multi-instrumentalist Sasami Ashworth on synths and Tabor Allen on drums. In 2016, Redman departed for undisclosed reasons, becoming a full-time member of his other band The Buttertones, and was replaced by bassist Devin O'Brien.

Cherry Glazerr released their sophomore album, Apocalipstick, on January 20th 2017. The band's first album for Secretly Canadian was recorded at Hollywood's Sunset Sound studio with producers Joe Chicarrelli (The Strokes, The White Stripes) and Carlos De La Garza (Paramore), and explores themes of female empowerment, individuality, sexuality and consumerism. Apocalipstick was released to critical acclaim: it was described by Pitchfork as the band's "fiercest recording yet, full of shredding jams, furious howls, and self-aware swagger', and its lead single 'I Told You I'd Be With The Guys' as a "tremendous indie rock tune powerful enough to restore your faith in the genre' by The Guardian.

Cherry Glazerr toured extensively across Europe and North America throughout 2017, supporting Foster the People and Slowdive on their North American tours, and playing a number of festivals, including FYF Fest, Pitchfork Fest and La Route du Rock.

In January 2018, Cherry Glazerr announced that Sasami Ashworth had left the band in order to concentrate on her own musical projects. The now-trio will be playing Coachella in April 2018.
