Several years in the making during multiple Victorian state lockdowns during 2020/21, Melbourne-based four-piece Creek have put the finishing touches on their rollicking new six-track EP of alt-rock goodness, with Bluestone out October 14 but premiering on Pilerats today!
Realising in early 2020 that live shows would be confined to loungeroom live streams for the foreseeable future, Creek turned their attention to Bluestone, with the name inspired by guitarist and vocalist Dylan Breshears’ childhood home and backyard featuring a garden hand built by his father, with Bluestone representing the foundations that need to be laid to build upon for the journey ahead.
A foundational EP indeed, Bluestone sees Creek draw on a wide range of influences, taking cues from late 60s/early 70s “jam” rock, as well as a number of touches taken from the realms of classic prog rock and more modern indie psych stylings, with inspirations as diverse as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to Deerhoof shining through.
Give Bluestone a spin today before it drops everywhere October 14, and if you’re in Naarm, catch the launch November 5 at The Evelyn!
