Any discussion of Cherry Glazerr is going to have a few obvious bullet points. First and foremost, the band is astonishingly young, with frontwoman/guitarist Clementine Creevy barely old enough to vote and bassist Sean Redman just barely above the drinking age. They are now rounded out by new members Sasami Ashworth on keyboard and guitar and Tabor Allen on drums. And then there's the fact that the band's debut cassette was released by California's current kings of DIY power pop and garage rock, Burger Records. So even if you know nothing else about the LA-based band, you know that they're young and that they're a part of the thriving underground community of stripped-down jubilant rock n' roll. But if you're envisioning a bunch of awkward, hyperactive kids bouncing around in their parent's basement, consider the fact that the band has been championed and photographed by French fashion designer Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent Paris. Slimane even commissioned the band to score his fall/winter 2014 Paris show. The result was "Had Ten Dollaz", a song that captures Cherry Glazerr's knack for dualities: sultry and virulent, sophisticated and casual, laid back and bombastic, playful and deliberate. Suicide Squeeze Records later paired "Had Ten Dollaz" with the equally intoxicating b-side "Nurse Ratched" as a limited edition 7” released in the spring of 2015. With a fleshed-out lineup, the band is currently at work on their follow up LP to Haxel Princess.
