Surely the coolest couple in the antipodean music scene, Dave Graney and Clare Moore have announced their new album ‘(strangely)(emotional)’ due out on 12 April, and as a statement of intent have released today the new single ‘Creative Creep’.
Last year saw a triumphant Dave Graney and the Coral Snakes tour Australia celebrating the 30th anniversary of the classic album ‘Night of the Wolverine’ (see my review here) and the year before that Graney and Moore were ‘Dave Graney & Clare Moore in a mistLY’. Now, it is just plain Graney and Moore together but the result, on the evidence of ‘Creative Creep’, is that the stylish, urbane and sardonic couple return with as much panache as ever.
‘Creative Creep’ has that louche, laid back uber cool feel, filled with Graney’s poetic discourse as serious and intense as it is witty and laconic. The vintage sounds and the jazzy cool exterior sparkle as Graney sings:
Don’t fence me in! And get in too! Let me be! Let me be! A creative creep! Ya standin’ too close to the flames!
With nothing to declare but his genius and sartorial splendour, Graney’s delivery is as always poised and immaculate.
The single is out everywhere today and can be downloaded and streamed through all the usual sites and via the pre-order for the album (out through Cockaigne Records) below:
