Clementine Creevy founded Cherry Glazerr at just 16 years old, back when the band was writing upbeat indie rock songs about grilled cheese and the trials and tribulations of life as a teenage girl. Don't let Cherry Glazerr's playful themes fool you — Creevy (now 22) flavors her songs with social criticisms, melding whimsy and grit into feminist anthems.

The Los Angeles-based trio released their first two albums, Papa Cremp (2013) and Haxel Princess (2014), via indie label Burger Records. The band signed to Secretly Canadian to reissue both albums, and in 2017 released the critically-acclaimed Apocalipstick.

The band released their latest album, Stuffed & Ready, on Feb. 1. Creevy, along with bassist Devin O'Brien and drummer Tabor Allen, stopped by The Current to chat with Sean McPherson and perform three of the album's songs.

Stuffed & Ready showcases a funkier side of Cherry Glazerr; Creevy says that she listened to LCD Soundsystem while writing the record and cites Funkadelic's Eddie Hazel as an influence on her guitar playing. Like Cherry Glazerr's earlier work, the album speaks out about gender roles and the expectations that society places on women. "Don't hold my hand / don't be my man," Creevy sneers at a controlling partner in the satirical "Daddi."

"I have a lot of fun playing the songs," Creevy told McPherson. "The content and the feelings behind a lot of the words are sort of a release for me. So even though they do seem dark on paper, it's actually very invigorating for me to play them."
