The Brisbane lads in The Creases have hit it large with their single ‘Impact’, which has seen heavy rotation on Triple J since they released it last month. No surprise – it’s a tight, joyous tune which harkens back to old-school psych pop: big jangly guitars, strings, and a loose vocal.
They’ve followed up the single’s success with a fun little vid, premiering today on PEDESTRIAN.TV. Vocalist and guitarist Joe Agius told us about the vision behind the clip:
When first discussing the video we told director Sophie Hayward that we wanted a very set and character heavy based clip, citing some of our favourite videos from bands like Blur and Dandy Warhols, and she organised all these amazing and interesting people to be involved and built and decorated the set rooms herself by hand. It was really amazing. This is the first video we haven’t actually made ourselves as well so it was a very strange and exciting experience to just simply turn up and be in it.
Have a looksie:
You can definitely feel the Dandy Warhols type neo-psych vibes in this one: a cast of weird bohemian characters and the band – dressed like your dad + uncles in 1971, just getting stuck in with their vintage amps.
