Young Creatures, alternately known as “the Creetch”, make surreal, ethereal music

that combines elements of shoegaze, psychedelic rock, indie, and pop. This Los

Angeles quartet toe the line between blissful dreamy pop and psychedelic indie rock.

After dropping two EPs in 2012 and 2013, the band released their self-produced full-

length debut Fear All The Things in 2014, solidifying the band’s sound and ethos as a

psychedelic pop-rock group. After some touring across North America, 2017’s The

Future is Finally Now was recorded at singer Mike Post’s brand-new recording studio

MooseCat Recording. The album featured a more diverse set of songs that

showcased a more adventurous aesthetic for the band. This was followed up by a 7”

single with the songs “Something I Don’t Know” and “Prisoner of Escape”, which was

also recorded at MooseCat and released on vinyl by Nomad Eel Records in 2018.

These songs once again find the band expanding upon their sound with more

elaborate arrangements.

Young Creatures currently consists of singer/guitarist Mike Post, guitarist/vocalist

Andrew Gleason, drummer Michael Escalante and bassist Donald Fisher. A proudly

DIY band, Young Creatures have toured major cities all over North America and

gotten attention from several publications, including Classic Rock Magazine, LA

Weekly, OC Weekly, Buzz Bands LA, and What Youth. In LA they’ve played venues

like The Bootleg, The Echo, and had residencies at the The Satellite. They also put on

their very own “Creature Feature Festival” at the Hi-Hat in Los Angeles in November

2018. They’ve done performances for Daytrotter, Converse Rubber Tracks, Balcony

TV, Sofar Sounds, & Jam in the Van. Their music has been featured in television

shows and independent films, as well as on repeated plays on terrestrial radio

stations such as Los Angeles’ 88.5 KCSN. They are currently performing shows and

also working on material for a new full-length album.
