It's with great excitement that Cherry Glazerr announces their signing to Secretly Canadian. To celebrate, the band is sharing a new single entitled "Told You I'd Be With The Guys". The song articulates lead-singer Clementine Creevy's realization that she needs to consciously strive for solidarity with other women in order to combat the sexism that is ingrained in our culture and consequentially within herself.
She hisses, "I told you, told you I'd be with the guys / But I know better now / Than to be with the guys", before snarling "I was a lone wolf / I thought I lost my pack / Where are my ladies? / I guess that was my fault".
Director Riley Blakeway visually compliments the sentiment with images of mundane men, all dressed in a uniform of red polo shirts and khakis, multiplying and crowding her space to a physically claustrophobic and soul-suffocating climax. Stream the video at the link below.

About Cherry Glazerr:
Cherry Glazerr was dreamt up by Clementine Creevy at age 15 in her LA bedroom. Having released their debut, Haxel Princess, on much-loved Cali imprint Burger Records and the scorching Had Ten Dollaz 7" on Suicide Squeeze, the band has now evolved into a wildly complex, hugely guitar heavy, and unapologetically loud machine. The catchy hooks in Cherry Glazerr's songs offer a counterpoint to the purposeful social commentary and incisive humor which has been ever-present since the band's formation. Bolstering Clem's vision is the loud-in-every-way-possible drummer Tabor Allen and the level-headed, nevertheless bad-ass, multi-instrumentalist Sasami Ashworth.
Their new single, "Told You I'd Be With The Guys" documents Clem's realization that she needed to establish solidarity with other women and stop being a "lone wolf." "Sexism is so ingrained in me, I can often feel that men are the only ones who can help me socially, economically. The most important thing in my life is that I've realized I need to work for solidarity. That song's both hopeful and dismal!" she laughs. Clem still feels like she constantly need to prove herself. "Women work from behind their oppression. In order to make good art you need to be emotionally free and sadly, not a lot of women are able to do that. That always puts a fire under my ass."
Molly Burch Signs To Captured TracksUnveils Video / Debut Single "Downhearted"
From 7" Out September 16
Austin, Texas' Molly Burch has announced she's signed with Captured Tracks. Today she's revealed her video for debut single "Downhearted" via FADER who've described Molly's voice as a "time capsule" and "retro country and soul in the best way".
After a relocation from Asheville to Austin, Molly found herself reflecting back on past lives and past relationships. Drawing inspiration from Dusty Springfield, Patsy Cline, TheShirelles, and The Everly Brothers, she recorded a mature set of tracks full of vintage atmosphere and dreamy melancholy.
"Downhearted" is a melodic, soulful introduction which dives into the depths of love and lovesickness, giving voice to the desires that separate the two. Burch explains "she wanted 'Downhearted' to have that mix of feelings. Heartache, but also the freedom and lightness that comes with being alone, and realizing that you're enough."
For the video, she joined director and friend Jordan Moser to make something fun, simple and dreamy-- sort of Françoise Hardy does East Austin."
