As if our lives aren’t poisoned enough, the latest track from the UK rock outfit Creeper titled “Poisoned Heart” will infiltrate into you know what. Thankfully unlike the song’s title, the track is a welcoming tune to the ears and overall body. Soft and deep yet compelling vocals from lead singer Will Gould blanket the track with a warmth that’s unmatched. Acoustic guitar coupled with progressive drums helps take the song to a new level of listening.
“This song was the first we had written where we’d experimented with a baritone lead vocal,” says Gould. “Inspired by Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave I attempted to sing in a way I had not before, combining this with a country sensibility we had established via a piano and acoustic guitar. Lyrically this song sits in the second act of our narrative, our protagonist is realising what it is to feel for the first time.”
If you have a high-end stereo, this track needs it and needs it now. If you only have an iPhone or Android, find your earbuds and put this song on repeat for days.
