Divus Julius presents: Creeper

Creeper was originally meant to put the flamboyance back into punk. A few years ago he and some friends recorded a self-titled EP, released it, and that was that. They never intended to play a show. They never planned a follow-up. They certainly never expected, three years later, to be sat in the central London offices of their record label talking about a debut album that draws as much from film and television as it does their musical heroes. It’s been a journey, with the band always threatening to outrun the reach of their control, but somehow they’ve managed each leap forward with grace and style. The band have given up their day jobs, and now Creeper is their full-time concern. They’re still injecting the flamboyance back into punk, but now, there are bigger targets in mind.

The Southampton goth-punks have returned with a new single, ‘Born Cold’, after a year-long hiatus.

Hit of the week: Rina Sawayama “Comme Des Garçons (Like The Boys)”

For over three years, London-based pop artist Rina Sawayama has been self-releasing singles, as well as her 2017 debut EP RINA. She served as pop princess Charli XCX’s supporting act during the U.K. stint of the Charli Live Tour. Back in November, she shared her first label release via Dirty Hit titled “STFU!,” which was an ode to nu metal and righteous rage at microaggressions. Friday, she shared a new single “Comme Des Garçons (Like The Boys)” and information on her forthcoming debut album, SAWAYAMA. The album is set for release on April 17.

4Ever Songs: The Rolling Stones ‘I Miss You’

“Miss You” was originally released on May 10, 1978, in the United States, but had to wait for another 16 days before it saw its release in the United Kingdom. The song was part of the band’s 16th American studio album, ‘Some Girls’.

After enjoying lots of airplay in America, this song managed to occupy the summit of Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1978. The song further performed well in weekly charts in other countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
