Following a great reception for their debut single That Night earlier this year, Newcastle rock band Creegan are back today with their expansive and anthemic new single. Satellites showcases their gritty riffs, punchy grooves and melancholy alt-pop melodies and is on all download/streaming platforms now.
Fans of Biffy Clyro, Jimmy Eat World and You Me At Six will dig this one – check it out on soundcloud below…
“The story of the song follows that one person in everyone’s life that just cannot do any wrong,” explains frontman Connor Pattison about the new single. “It’s about how love can blind someone no matter what they do’.
The four-piece cemented themselves on the busy NE rock scene with a packed debut gig at Riverside Newcastle at the beginning of the year for the launch of their first single That Night, which subsequently received coverage from Amazing Radio, BBC Radio Newcastle, and Gigs North East.
Pattison, who can regularly be seen performing solo around various Newcastle bars and venues, started Creegan as a solo project a few years ago but wanted to achieve a bigger sound, so brought on board local musicians Luke Gaul, Glenn Lambie, and Harry Still to develop a grungy, energy driven soundprint.
His personal musical inspiration ranges from the folk-laden tones of the likes of Bear’s Den to the heavier sound of Bring Me The Horizon, with Creegan’s unique sound cherry picking from genres across that range.
