Sexton Creeps is an international musical project from the underground art scene in Groningen, Holland. A musical collective rooted in experimental and psychedelic music,
combining dark guitar grooves with psychedelic soundscapes created by DIY instruments, effects, and classical violins to top it all off.
Their deep and vivacious live gigs earned them a good live reputation which lead to successful gigs on Noorderzon 2012, Fringe Festival Amsterdam 2012, and bookings as the opening acts for
O'Death, The Kill Devil Hills and Deer Tick.
In June 2009 the band released their first studio album Song For My Kaiserin, which was well received by the critics and was labeled 'Krochtenrock' (i.e. 'Crypt Rock') and 'Dark wave indie
curiosities'. In February 2011 the band released their second album The Sour Acre on Dying Giraffe records and was sold in music stores throughout Holland. The next album
Alex Hotel (Geertruida, 2013) was a collaboration with sound artist Kasper van Hoek. Kasper van Hoek is now a fulltime member of the band and on
their latest album Lesbian Skies, his experimental sounds are completely incorporated within the Sexton Creeps sound machinery. The aim of
this new album was to research the boundaries of pop music. This all resulted in something more solidly structured than before, but without having to compromise the edges of their 'own'
Sexton Creepish sound!
The Sexton Creeps: a band like an unreliable stove, at which one can gently warm or harmfully burn oneself.
