Over the course of two releases (2013’s Fox Tales and 2016’s Echoes and Relics EP) and a string of singles, country-inflected Tennessee indie rockets Creature Comfort have made a name for themselves by crafting songs that explore what it means to be caught between two worlds. On their latest full-length LP, Home Team, released in October 2020, the band captures a sound caught between the rural and the urban.
New Noise Magazine is proud to premiere the music video for the album’s latest single, “Single Soul,” below:
On the track, lead singer and guitarist Jessey Clark states:
“This song is very high energy and somewhat rebellious in nature, similar to skateboarding. The song itself is about racial injustice in America and I wanted to highlight Black talent to align with the meaning and values of the song.
Our friend Terrance and some other friends whom we grew up with are incredible skateboarders and it made sense for us to shoot a skate video in our hometown of Tullahoma, Tennessee. The filmmaker Tyre Grannemann captured us having a great time while they showed off their skills.”
Nowhere has Clark examined this friction between the rural and the urban better than on Home Team. Produced by Drew Vandenberg (Faye Webster, of Montreal, Toro y Moi), the record not only finds Clark homing in on what it means to come of age, but it also sees him trying to make sense of an increasingly volatile world.
Think of it as Fleet Foxes for people who grew up bailing hay, or your favorite indie record—if that record were scattered, smothered, and covered, of course.
