CREYE was put together by guitarist Andreas Gullstrand in early 2015. After playing in different bands over the years, including Grand Slam, Andreas felt that it was about time to turn it up a notch. His vision was to start a new Swedish pop/rock sensation that would take listeners on a journey back to the glory days of the eighties, both musically and visually. After spending nearly two months experimenting with the sound of the band, Andreas settled on what could best be described as a slick melodic rock sound with a touch of 80’s retro in the mix.

Vocal harmonies, sweeping keyboards and melodic guitar lines .. does that tick all of your boxes? Then this is definitely the LP for you. This is one hell of a slab of melodic rock, reaching back to the 80’s but firmly establishing that this genre is back and is here to stay. This LP really was a pleasure to listen to, and you can really see what Andreas was trying to achieve. Some may feel that it is slightly overproduced, however, that is the charm of the LP.

Robin Jidhed – Lead Vocals has a pure tone and a mighty range, which sits perfectly on top of the guitars and keyboards. Add to this mix a tight rhythm section and you are onto a winner.

The songs are well written with opener “Holding On”, “Never Too Late”, “Desperately Lovin” and the ballad “Love Will Never Die” standing out.

Creye will be appearing at the Rockingham Festival 19th – 21st October, just follwing the release of this LP on 12th October.
