Simple Creatures are back with more fun antics than before! The Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth fronted project have released their next song “Strange Love,” with an accompanying music video that keeps the vibe feeling pretty old school. “Strange Love” which also happens to be the name of the duos’ upcoming debut EP is a pretty fantastical song, and so much better than previously released “Drug,” which was also fun in itself. We’ll have a more detailed review of “Strange Love” in the next few days.
When talking about the EP itself, the duo stated “cooked up in studios and basements around Los Angeles, we set out to push ourselves in musical directions that are new and exciting to us. Embracing new recording techniques and processes, we broke songs down to their barest bones and rebuilt them into musical Frankenstein monsters. From uptempo tracks like “Drug,” to the ratty snarl of “Lucy,” we’ve broken out of our own musical molds and built a world of trashy guitars, distorted synths, crushing programmed drums, and a whole lot of fun and noise.”
Simple Creatures’ debut EP Strange Love will see its release on March 29 via BMG and you can begin the pre-order process now in the form of a few bundles through the band’s storefront. You can also check out the track list for the upcoming release down below. I’m personally looking forward to some Simple Creatures live shows in the near future, which the duo have also teased numerous times.
