Brighton Six Piece Creeping Jean Put A Modern Twist On The Vintage Ahead Of Homecoming Date

Putting a modern twist on the vintage 60s & 70s sound, Creeping Jean are a Brighton six piece offering up huge indie-rock tunes to cut through summer's lazy haze. 

Having picked up ongoing radio support the band release new single Desert Sauce, ahead of their upcoming UK tour which will bring them to Patterns Brighton, in October.

Taking a full throttle approach on the opening of Desert Sauce, Creeping Jean quickly build momentum with a wall of biting guitars, warm keys and tight, punching drums. 

Olly's incisive vocal take demonstrates his effortless ability to bring a charismatic energy to the track as he delivers tongue in cheek, dessert laden innuendos one by one. 


Bringing together influences such as Jack White and The Doors, the single truly captures the tight yet electrifying and explosive nature of their live shows, showcasing them as one of the UK's most exciting up and coming indie Rock outfits.

Speaking on the new single, lead singer Olly said: 

"Having a real sweet tooth and a love for desserts, we word played innuendos as we carved a desert rock sounding record with a title switch from 'dessert sauce' into one that would be a no.1 hit for any cake maker. 

"Savoy truffle by the Beatles was a little inspiration as well."

Having sold five thousand pairs of converse via their Brighton based shop Waiste Vintage and at carboot sales, Creeping Jean are a homegrown band with a stadium sound thundering their way towards success in 2021.
