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.  

After a string of high-profile supports with the likes of Ball Park Music, Boo Seeka, Killing Heidi and Kingswood, Creature Fear have done things the old-fashioned way -  earning their live stripes first.

With their theatrical, leg-spasming live show turning heads, Creature Fear are not just an energetic live act but have something interesting and startlingly original to say.

With their mix of character based songs (Ranging from seedy crime scenes to sci-fi epics) and more raw personal tunes covering impressively diverse genres, the music works along their most striking asset: the dual lead vocals of Graham’s garbled menace and singer Jacqui Lumsden’s Joni-meets-Janis pristine shrieks.

Wasn't expecting this steady change of pace from you guys that's for sure! Jacqui, your vocals are divine on this track.

It's bright, colourful and that chorus is a real catch. First time listening and I'm already singing along to it. What a debut!

Hauntingly beautiful vocals accompanied by sweet and warm instrumental tones. This song has the perfect contour of dynamics and heaps of catchy melodies for the ultimate musical journey. Love it!
