When the pilot episode of Network 77 dropped last month, I was rather intrigued by the Muziekpop segment featuring the band Creamer and their performance of “Drugs No More.” The video is equal parts cheesy local broadcast and 70’s green screen effects but the song is a finely tuned gem heavily influenced by Queen. The only problem? The band seemed to be from Texas, so I couldn’t spread the gospel!
Fortunately, it turns out that the band moved here and recorded an entire album to be released… sometime. The first single is a dash melancholy, a dash earnest and entirely infectious. If they manage to put together 12 songs in this vein, we’ll have a helluva great album on our hands.
