I first mentioned Creatures of Love on the back of seeing them in January, besides the odd supporting gig slot they've since been quietly working away at getting their debut release ready, and lo and behold now it is...
The aptly titled 'An Introduction to Creatures of Love' is released 18th July as a free download and extremely limited (just 66 copies) single track CD in 7" packaging via the CoL musicglue site, go ahead and order, but you probably shouldn't dilly-dally.
The track is magnificent, chiming keys, pounding electro beats and edgy guitar create a brooding, otherworldly ambience whilst Bonita's powerful, dramatic vocal strikes a chord, it's a real statement of intent.
Do check out the demo of "Barbitos" and "The Book Thief" too, incredible tracks. I'm looking forward to hearing the next releases already.
The band have been announced as first support for a certain band called The Joy Formidable on their upcoming tour (full dates here), there is headlining single launch show at Dalston's Servant Jazz Quarters on July 21st, I saw Fanfarlo there early last year and the place is tiny, so get down early (Facebook event details).
