Sydney three-piece Creo‘s new single ‘Demon to Love’ sees frontman Jorjee Haman reflect – above the band’s brand of blistering yet spirited indie rock – on the path to loving yourself and owning your individuality.
“‘Demon to Love’ was written off the back of my daily struggle with today’s all too common comparison culture. Towards the end of last year, I found myself constantly focusing what those around me were doing, and comparing myself to them,” Haman explains.
“It’s almost unavoidable these days with social media – so I deleted all of it, focused on my wins, and it’s made me a much happier person. The song is a celebration of loving all of you, not just the parts that you want people to see. Life is hard enough; why make it harder?”
‘Demon to Love’ is the second single from Creo’s forthcoming EP, following up ‘Juliet’ back in May. Recorded with producer Nathan Sheehy, Haman says the new songs show a new sense of clarity and directness in the band’s approach, with each part a deliberate and purposeful inclusion.
“Previously we’d throw a lot at the song for the sake of being creative and sometimes it was a little distracting. This time we listened to what the songs needed musically and rid the barriers we set on ourselves – if the song needed a synth, we didn’t try to replicate it with a guitar – we just used a synth.”
The song arrives alongside a Murli Dhir-directed video, which we’re premiering here at Music Feeds today ahead of it arriving officially on Friday. Check that out below.
