Sharlene Chiu’s FASHION + music pick: “You” by CREEP
CREEP is Brooklyn’s DJ/producer duo Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard. These two make sleekly haunting music with clean electro beats with enough space for you to fall right into the song’s heart. If you find yourself going through the xx withdrawal like I am, you should check out CREEP’s “Days” which features the xx’s Romy Madley Croft’s hypnotic vocals. Apparently, “Days” was the first track written by Flax and Dillard while in bed and you can definitely hear the intimacy. CREEP’s recent single, “You”, features vocals from Nicole and Natalie Albino of Nina Sky and has a trip-hop, R&B feel, but the sheer darkness that links all of CREEP still permeates. Check out the minimalistic black and white video (dripping blood included, of course) for “You” that’ll leave you in a wicked double-take.
