    Cherry Glazerr - Apocalipstick (Secretly Canadian)

    We first heard of Cherry Glazerr when we played their song “Had Ten Dollaz” a few years back. Led by 19-year-old Clementine Creevy (great name!), the youthful group has had a shifting lineup in its brief career so far. Speaking of great names, Creevy took the inspiration for her band’s from L.A. radio DJ Chery Glaser. Already on the third release, their full length debut, Apocalipstick (yet another great name!), Cherry Glazerr moves into the spotlight with plenty of attitude and raw guitar sounds.

    You’ve heard album opener “Told You I’d Be with the Guys” on Y-Not for months now, with its big lurching hooks and Creevy sounding out “guyyy-hiiyyys” in its chorus. She tells Billboard the song is about women having to make their own space in a male-dominated world (an extra timely topic given the events of the past weekend).

    Lest you forget Creevy is still a teen, there’s “Trash People,” which is essentially about living like a lot of college-aged kids and/or young artists do: “We wear our underpants three days in a row / My room smells like an ashtray.”

    Apocalipstick is full of fuzzed-out rockers with trippy, grungy guitars, such as “Humble Pro,” “Sip O’ Poison” and second single “Nurse Ratched.” The title track wraps up the whole album in a wall of guitar heaviness. Creevy & co. prove that Cherry Glazerr is a force to be reckoned with now while showing promise of even greater things to come down the road.
