Published Apr 20, 2018Long-running Ottawa gloom punks the Creeps have been going strong since 1999, but they continue to find new ways to impress. Today, Exclaim! is proud to premiere their new album Beneath the Pines.
The 11 songs on Beneath the Pines mark a major progression for the band, both sonically and lyrically. The songs are spacious and drawn out, and the lyrical themes have moved past the Creeps' previous obsession with death and suicide to instead focus on life and love (albeit through a similarly downtrodden lens).
