Regional Creeps continue to build anticipation for their second album, No One Cares, with a brand new single. Andy Brown momentarily stops dancing to share his thoughts for Louder Than War.
Indie-pop is alive and well and living in Yorkshire! For the uninitiated, Regional Creeps are a Barnsley-based, indie 4-piece who released their ace debut album last year. Never Gonna Happen was easily one of my favourite albums of 2019, the band effortlessly capturing the spirit of indie-pop with breezy, melodic and melancholic odes to youthful, wasted days. An album for spending summer days inside, lovesick and lethargic. 27 minutes of indie-pop perfection. With all this in mind, I’m pretty excited for their new album in late November.
No Offence is another rough diamond of a tune, preaching from the same lo-fi handbook as early Pavement. The band eschew overly polished production in favour of a brilliant, straight-from-the-practice-room sound. It’s another fine tune from songwriters Zach Duvall and Giannis Kipreos that finds euphoric guitar lines and melancholic harmonies building to a satisfyingly noisy conclusion. The raw, unfiltered, immediacy making me miss live music more than ever. Honestly, if Regional Creeps don’t make you want to dance around your bedroom, arms flailing wildly, I don’t know what will!
