Cherry Glazerr — led by lead singer Clementine Creevy — aims their incisive and raucous eye inward on their new album I Don’t Want You Anymore. The band will also be heading out on a U.S. headlining tour next year, including a stop at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles on March 1st. Tickets for all dates go on sale this Friday, October 6th at 10am local time.
Conceived during the pandemic and the forced state of introspection its isolation catalyzed, the new record finds Creevy delving into the nerve center of past and current relationships. Oscillating between desperate obsession and an inability to let go the songs on I Don’t Want You Anymore bristle with a raw clarity.
“I’m feeling frozen, like I don’t wanna talk / I’ve run out of things, I’m addicted to your love,” she laments on its opening track “Addicted To Your Love,” her words gliding glumly along to her guitar. “Watch it get dark from my room / It pinches my heart to be alone with my thoughts of you.” Across the album’s various genre shifts the toxicity only grows: on “Bad Habit” a synth-pop buoyancy melds into heavy rock sonics as Creevy loses herself down a rabbit hole of desire.
Against the heavy throwdown of grinding riffs that grumble forth on “Touched You With My Chaos,” she diverts her penetrating gaze at herself. “So sorry I did this / I threw you into my chaos,” Creevy wails. “I wanted a reason to feel you.” Rip-roaring ragers like “Soft Like A Flower” — and the jangly-riff exchange that radiates from “Eat You Like a Pill” — continue her reckoning with such compulsive infatuation.
As she sings on “Golden,” her voice warped amidst spacey and jazz-tinted instrumentals: “It’s how I know how to love / Feed the beast inside of me / Crater on my heart / Guess now I’m yours.” Other standouts on the record include the dreamily gauzy ballad “Shattered” and the rollicking title track — which also serves as its fiercely honest finale.
See Cherry Glazerr at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles on March 1st.
