Hot Takes: Getting To Know Crejuvent

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

In this edition, we have Crejuvent! Check out our chat below:

Q1: Who is in your band?

It’s just me as Crejuvent is my solo project. Everything you see and hear is a my doing and nobody else’s. Which explains quite a lot really.

Q2: What is your take on your own sound?

I don’t know, I don’t really have a take on a sound. I just…write. As soon as you start thinking about it too much or you try to get a specific sound it stops being what I want it to be, which is a cathartic sort of expression. I write when I feel I have something I wanna express, and that expression for me should be uninhibited. The sounds that comes out of it is a byproduct really, I don’t approach writing thinking “I’m gonna write a death metal song now!”. Shit just happens.

Q3: If you someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

Either Dualism off the 2015 Pretty Demos release or Blue Spirit, which is the b-side to my last single Vesti La Giubba which was released last month. Dualism is a bit more straightforward a track but it’s still really heavy, and has got that super uplifting choir-like feeling for half the song. Blue Spirit is a bit proggier, it’s about 9 minutes long but is a good showcase track as it has a bit of everything I do.

Q4: What is the plan for 2019?

I’m gonna be looking to do a few shows here and there whilst trying to get material together for another release. I have an idea for my next release but it’ll take a long time before it can come to fruition so I’m just using this time to gather inspiration after my last release.

Q5: What is the one song you wish you wrote?

None. What difference would it have made if I wrote it or someone else?

Actually, I wish I had written the song that made the writer the most money out of all the songs in the world.

Q6: What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

Inspirations change man, right now it’s Vektor, Lerpous, and Igorrr.

Q7: Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

You can listen to my music LITERALLY everywhere, on all streaming and download platforms, on YouTube, on Bandcamp, whatever! I won’t be doing too many live shows, but so far y’all can see me play at the Musicians Against Homelessness festival here in Liverpool in September!

Q8: If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

A naked mole rat. Because have you seen those things? Eww. But somebody out there MUST think they’re cute, you know?
