All fans of wavey post punk: Point your eyes towards Leipzig. The threesome CREAMS is about to rule the world of bad temper. Their music is probably best described as: several shades of darkness – not withouth one or another bright spot though.
After the highly praised self-titled debut in 2016 CREAMS are back exactly two years later with their temporary magnum opus "Olympia II". The probably best german Shoegaze album ever was produced by the band itself, in their rehearsal space in Leipzig; only at the very end Fritz Brückner (White Wine) was allowed to turn to fine-tuning in the mastering process.
Roaring basses, a spot of New Wave, the guitar both clear and clamorous and a soft voice that needs space, and that takes it. A trio that is refusing, won't go along with everything, but nevertheless is a new thing. A trio, that has heard of Slowdive, Built To Spill and Sad Lovers & Giants before and that shared stages with Ulrika Spacek, Merchandise and Big Ups.
"Olympia II" is out in February 2, 2018 via their own label Hidden Structures and Sportklub Rotter Damm, one week later the European tour will start.
