Creeper have shared an acoustic take on King Dude's 'Spiders In Her Hair'.
The south coast band are back from the brink, with their new album 'Sex, Death & The Infinite Void' due to land this summer.
With the group's April tour being pushed back to August, Creeper have decided to fill their free time with music.
Incoming project 'Sounds From The Void' shows a different side of the unhinged group, one dominated by acoustic tones, and a more subtle sense of mourning.
First up: this neat as hell King Dude cover. Swapping the Southern gothic landscapes of the original for something a little more British, it's an affecting, spine-chilling take on 'Spiders In Her Hair'.
The opening lyrics spin a tale of after-life romance: “I always said I was blacker than the blood / Running through the devil’s soiled veins / Until I met a girl not quite of this world…”
Creeper's version was laid to rest by Will Gould and guitarist Ian Miles, swapping different parts during lockdown.
“We have been big fans of King Dude for a while,” says Gould. “My girlfriend and I would listen to ‘Love’ an awful lot when we first got together and this kinda became our song. Knowing we’d have limited resources in lockdown meant that recording some acoustic songs made sense. This was the first song that I knew I’d love us to do.”
Tune in now.
