Creature Comfort is a Nashville-based four-piece that offers a refreshing and alternative take on traditional indie rock. The band thrives in the delicate spaces between experimental and approachable, penning highly-versatile pop tunes that dabble in everything from psych to surf to folk to country.
The close-knit quartet of Middle Tennessee natives hail from disparate musical backgrounds, but all share an energetic passion for inventive songwriting and a hands-on production style. The band formed in college and released their debut album Fox Tales in 2013, a well-received collection of alternative rock jams full of emotive lyrics, sweeping guitar licks, mobile bass lines, and unique production effects. Following numerous shows and a couple of tours in support of their debut, Creature Comfort took a brief hiatus and retreated to the studio. They returned in May 2016 with a new EP Echoes & Relics.
On Echoes & Relics, the band fully settled into their sound. The EP is full of lush vocals and shimmering guitar tones, thanks to the ever-evolving, production wizardy of guitarist and in-house producer Nick Rose. In addition, the increasingly-sophisticated songwriting of frontman and rhythm guitarist Jessey Clark, combined with matured compositions from the quartet, help make for a highly-absorbing batch of songs.
In September of 2016, the band embarked on an east coast tour in support of E&R. Upon their return to Nashville, they released the single “Teeth For Days”. The single was well received and now has over 100k streams after receiving placement on several Spotify curated playlists. In Spring of 2017, the band competed and won Miller Light’s Road to Roo competition. This landed the band a slot at Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival where they played to a crowd of 600+ at the New Music On Tap Lounge.
Post-Roo, Creature Comfort released the single “Common John (Southern Shame)”, which portrays the emotion of being anti-Trump in the South. After its release, the band is back in the process of writing their upcoming full-length record that will build on the foundation that Echoes & Relics and their singles have provided.
