Psychedelic rockers Creepoid release dark, dragging track “Truth” from forthcoming Wet EP

Heavy psychedelic rock band Creepoid have already announced their forthcoming EP, Wet, set to be released as a 12″ on April 19 – Record Store Day, appropriately – and in anticipation of that release the Philly band has premiered a new track from the EP titled “Truth” over at CMJ.

“Truth” opens up with a punch-in-the-stomach bass line, dragging the track the whole way through under ethereal, dream-like vocals. Anna Troxell’s voice is, in one word, mesmerizing; swaying in a way that evokes feelings of “I want to die and be alive” at the same time. The tempo is a bit slower than the previously released “Wet Bread”, with lugging guitars that creep and linger. I’m completely about it.

Be sure to pick up the 12″ via Graveface April 19. Stream “Truth” below.
