Timeless, cinematic songs. Timber Timbre returns with Creep On Creepin’ On. The follow-up to 2009’s self-titled release, vocalist Taylor Kirk is
joined by Mika Posen (violin) and Simon Trottier (lap steel, auto harp), on heartrending compositions that engage, transport and challenge. Creep
On Creepin’ On moves forward from the band’s Polaris Music Prize-nominated Timber Timbre, towards the realization of its ability to simultaneously
invoke and disguise the most essential elements of pop and rock music with chilling authenticity. From guttural groans on lead track “Bad
Ritual” to the eerie doo-wop inspired pleas of “Lonesome Hunter”, the album is textured and commanding, stirring proof of the unwavering powers
of obsession and possession.
Creep On Creepin’ On was produced by Timber Timbre and engineered by Kees Dekker and three-time Grammy nominee Mark Lawson inside a
converted church studio. And while settings continue to change for the band, the guiding inspiration behind its music has not. “Our goal remains
to make interesting songs that sound as though they could come from any time in the era of western music,” Kirk explains. “The idea is to make
music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music we’ve ever loved, all at once.” The result is Timber Timbre’s most
brilliant and robust record to date, a collection of 10 tracks that expands to incorporate rich and varied melodies, affecting lyricism and evocative
vintage instrumentation. With Creep On Creepin’ On, Timber Timbre has succeeded in reaching a place it was long destined for, where its music
is as powerful and extraordinary as it has always been unmistakable.
