Put on your swim fins and water wings! For this review, we’re going for a dip in Kreek. Just watch your step, because this Kreek is full of Hard Rock, and it flows fast and deep! Welcome the new band, for whom the debut EP is named, to the international music scene. Kreek is the brainchild of ex-Bigfoot singer Antony Ellis, fully armed with some of the best Neo-Classic Rock I’ve heard in a long time.​

Faint whispers from the era of Iron Maiden and Deep Purple are sensed on a subliminal level. Even early Sammy Hagar stylings can be detected. Ellis’s vocal homages to 70s bravado are balanced by Guitarist Nick Clarke’s contemporary approach, so it doesn’t come off as a mimicking rip-off. Bassist Lee Andrews is gloriously brought to the audio forefront, more so than many other bands who keep baselines submerged while the guitarist and singer snatch up all the attention. Seb Sweet provides the critical framework to keep everyone moving in the same musical direction. Intricate moving parts of each arrangement are stabilized by Sweet’s decision to either play simple measures or erupt with just enough flourish.​

Classic Rock lovers will enjoy the edgy theatrics from the age of flashy arena shows. Hard Rock fans will latch onto the raw audio power that keeps Kreek moving from one thundering track to the next. Just be careful if you crank this EP while driving on the highway. Next thing y’know, the speedometer reads 115 and might attract ole’ Johnny Law’s attention (or, in my case, Jenny Law). There is a ballad track on Kreek, “You’re On Your Own", a genuine heart-on-a-sleeve sentiment backed by gradually accelerating music. Instead of a discouragingly sappy tale of heartbreak, there is more of a call to pick up and move on, start anew. Hear for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0e2Yk1J_JU

Get ready to take a plunge into Kreek when the EP becomes available to stream (unintentional pun) on February 12th. Until then, you can dip a toe in and get a feel for the faster stuff with “Million Dollar Man”:​ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pr43k1TzYmQ
