Here’s some brand spanking new and hotly tipped dark lezzy electronica for you.  Within the is-it-real-or-is-it-a-joke genre of ‘witch house’, Creep hail from (where else?) Brooklyn.  A talented duo of trendestting DJs Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard, the former is responsible for the mixing of Casey Spooner’s records during Fischerspooner DJ slots.  Their debut single ‘Days’ features Romy Madley Croft of The xx on vocals and sounds to us like the logical progression of their Mercury winning sound taken to more heavily electronic territory.  It’s suitably spooky, with dark synths and insistent, industrial sounding percussion that also seems to borrow a little from UK funky.  Topped off with Romy’s vocals however, there’s a definite pop edge to their sound.

The release comes backed with a future garage re-work courtesy of Deadboy alongside a groovy, stripped-down house effort by industrious Toronto collective Azari & III.  Both give the original a good run for its money and also worth a listen is the group’s recent Fact Magazine Mix which shows that whilst their sound might be brooding, they’ve always got at least two of their four ears on the dancefloor.
