Creepers & Vines finds Nashville-based musician Steve Lewis bringing his trademark gravitas and style to twelve fetching new songs, with psychedelic undertones, gritty guitars and fearsome backbeats.
The songs on Creepers & Vines combine larger-than-life guitar riffs and pop songwriting sensibilities, creating a powerful blend of garage and roots rock — equal parts hook and pure guitar muscle. Dreamy acoustic oddities venture into the realm of psych/freak-folk, providing palate cleansers amid the more full electric rock band numbers, while Lewis’ lonesome vocals evoke the psychedelic dread of Neil Young and the manic energy of David Byrne.
Steve Lewis’ Creepers & Vines will be self-released on August 28 and available on CD and digital formats.
Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering the record. This is what Lewis told us about it:
“The music on Creepers & Vines exists in the riff-rock/garage/psychedelic genre and is full of apocalyptic and ironic imagery. The record reflects on the relationship between our modern, comfortable society and the potential chaos just below the surface.”
