The Creeping Ivies - The Witch House EP

Do you remember, or have the old timers told you about, clean, pure old-fashioned pop music in the style of Pat Boone?  You know, white bucks, trim haircuts, clean and sweet lyrics and inoffensive themes.  Well, thank Odin -- The Witch House EP from Glasgow's The Creeping Ivies is nothing like that.  What it is, is three tracks with garage rock grit and authentic punk bite, dripping sexy grooves and switchblade-in-the-boot swagger.  It is loud, stylish and confident statement from the trio, and gives all of us fuel for our late summer and fall party mixes.  The title track is masterful garage rock, driving, pounding and hook-filled.  Put it on, and the dancing most definitely has started.  "Only the Moon" is a rhythmic slice of garage pop with twanging guitar solos and handclaps.  The closing "Bye Bye Babe"  is the sound of a girl group fronting a surf band in a California garage on a summer evening in the mid '60s.  And if that sound doesn't excite you, maybe you should head over to the Pat Boone bin.

The Witch House is available now as a digital release from Flowers In The Dustbin; see the Bandcamp link below.

The Creeping Ivies have released two albums in the past, and will be releasing the compilation Your New Favorite Garage Band later this year.  The current line-up is Becca Murray (vocals/guitar), Ian Duncan (drums), and Christy Taylor (bass).  The band originally was incarnated as a duo, but the drummer moved overseas and Becca recruited Ian and Christy.
