Deep Creep is a band that unites at the populated intersection of the Murder City Devils, Pretty Girls Make Graves, the Cave Singers and Cute Lepers. Deep Creep favor the stompy rock of the '70s, while also branching out into unique areas of their own devising.

"Derek (Fudesco) and I were working together at Easy Street Records," says guitarist Brian Yeager. "We decided that we wanted to start writing songs together. We both had similar interests in music, and we got along well, so that's what we did. Then, we got Jeff Alvarez on the drums and Andrea Zollo singing."

Some readers may know Fudesco and Zollo as the forming members of Pretty Girls Make Graves. As a vocalist, Zollo leads Deep Creep with a voice that howls and deadpans in equal measure, creating the sort of platonic ideal of a New Wave frontwoman. With all of the '70s-indebted crunch, her vocals are one of the main factors keeping this from devolving into classic rock idealism. When Deep Creep strays from this format, they do so in "Move a Little," which has already gotten some attention for its boisterous, B-52s-esque shimmy.
