Bio

What do you get when you take five ambitious and manic musicians from far-flung suburbs and country towns and lock them in an inner-city Melbourne rehearsal room? You get Creature Fear– a compelling mix of 60’s garage rock and modern atmospherics rolled into a full-bore, shoes-off sound that can still whisper sweet nothings in your ear.

Following a series of independently released triple j approved singles, 2019 proved to be a breakout year for Creature Fear. Sharing the stage with major acts including Ball Park Music, a run of tour dates with Kingswood, supporting heavy hitters; Boo Seeka, Killing Heidi, The Delta Riggs & Tired Lion as well as selling out headline shows for the launch of singles ‘Baby Love Me’ & breakthrough gem, ‘Makeup’. 
 
This success led to further milestones in Creature Fear’s history to date which included festival appearances at New Year’s Eve on the Hill 2019, Beyond the Valley Festival 2019 & St Kilda Fest in the summer of 2020. This year they were set to perform alongside Boo Seeka at The Drive-In concert series which were unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19.
 
Renowned for their theatrical, leg-spasming live show which brings back the exciting energy of a 60’s rock n roll crowd wanting to dance the night away, Creature Fear blends the manic old-time fun and excitement with the sleekness of modern-day music to perfection.

With big aspirations, huge plans and no signs of slowing down, be prepared to witness Creature Fear’s continued ascent into 2021.

Jacqui Lumsden, your voice breaks my heart into perfect pieces as you drive this song - OMG. This tune is a mood. A mood I want to see on festival stages v. soon.

I love hearing Creature Fear in this light. It begins with this lullaby-like presence, it doesn't rush itself and then builds into energy that the band feel right at home with.

an expertly orchestrated build and some gripping moments of tension and delicacy, it's beautiful stuff from Creature Fear.
