Presenting a set of images made between Covid-19 UK lockdowns, featuring Brighton rock band Creature Creature. I was introduced to the band's music via their singer, Scully, after some interactions on instagram. We had a mutual connection in Tommy Gleeson (Feeder, Slaves To Gravity, The*Ga*Ga*s) who produced the debut album Two Finger Tantrum which was released in the Summer last year, and so I checked it out. I have been playing it a LOT since!
They're a band making music influenced by life in the real world, in the towns and cities, music very much from the street, and very "British" too. My first impressions hinted towards the debut albums from Hard-Fi and Kaiser Chiefs and similar, but with much more of a rock grounding. Tommy Gleeson's influence surely introduces a Slaves To Gravity feel to some of the songs too. It sounds great, feels contemporary but with a timeless quality. For sure, it's an album that won't grow old anytime soon.
In keeping with the street feel I wanted to photograph the band in an urban environment, ideally with nothing of the natural world appearing in shot. I have always liked the entrance to Brighton marina for its stark concrete architecture so thought it could work as a location for the shoot. These were the first band portraits I had done in many months (thanks to the pandemic restrictions) and it felt great to dust off the gear after such a long while.
If you like what you see (or even if you don't!) do check out the band further. Their album, Two Finger Tantrum, is all "killer, no filler", and if catchy British rock is your thing then this record should be a very classy addition to your collection, BUY IT!
