CREO Are Shrouded In A Deep Red On The ‘Plasticine Mezzanine’ Video


Since we last covered CREO—back in September last year for the incredible ‘Subtitles For X, Y, Z’ EP—they’ve become an entirely new entity. Their new single, Plasticine Mezzanine has accrued them a plethora of national love—followed by a national tour—not to mention the recent release of their new EP, ‘In  The Red’.

Plasticine Mezzanine has now been paired with a highly stylised music video. Keeping in theme of their EP title, the video is sheltered in a veil of deep red. Frontman, Jorjee Haman, is front-and-centre and, as the video progress, the quality begins to crumble—injecting a broken VHS filter and double exposure effect.

In a recent interview with the band, they explain the fevered influence behind its lyrics.

We’ve toured a bunch over the years and travelled the country numerous times playing shows. We’ve been lucky enough to meet some amazing people on the way and unfortunately, we’ve also had the unfortunate experience of being acquainted with some sociopaths. This song is our take on the mind of the latter,” explains CREO.

‘In The Red’ is, much like their previous EP, a complete musical journey. It circles between atmospheric ballads (Sentenced To Ten), to the arena-rock sized guitar swirls of You Can Do It and even manages to slide in a brooding piece of instrumental experimentation with The Battle Of Rawhipuka. This song, in particular, captures the momentum of the band for me. They’re constantly striving for new sounds and new ideas, all the while tethered to an ingenious pop movement.
