CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

Apocalipstick is fast, furious and, most importantly, fun.

80
The 405

The title and cover of Apocalipstick sum it up perfectly: encompassing everything from the smallest quibbles of youthful existence to the largest problems facing the world today – all delivered in a slightly cartoony, extremely bombastic and hugely enjoyable package.

Under The Radar

The soft/loud dynamic is played with precision and the twists and turns on each of the well-crafted tracks is a thoroughfare of sonic pleasures. Soaring guitar chords and searing leads are tempered with smooth interludes and danceable beats while clever lyrics are served up with Creevy's enchanting, controlled screaming.

GIGsoup

Occasionally they lapse into bland, cookie-cutter noise-pop or vapid lyrical refrains. This isn’t to detract from the record’s allure, the majority of which is enjoyably ragged fun.

74
Pitchfork

On their sophomore album, the Los Angeles rock trio fronted by Clementine Creevy have offered their fiercest recordings yet, full of shredding jams, furious howls, and self-aware swagger.

Loud and Quiet
With a title and album cover that could be mistaken for a feminist sci-fi flick that’s destined to be a cult-classic, Cherry Glazerr’s second effort ‘Apocalipstick’ offers a healthy dosage of slacker-pop that will find itself welcomed with open arms by those with an ear for the likes of Hinds, Diet Cig and Girlpool.

AllMusic

2017's Apocalipstick has a powerful wallop earlier albums lacked, with the bass and drums punching through the mix, Creevy's guitar slashing and crashing, and her vocals showing some growth.

60
The Guardian
A rejigged lineup and White Stripes producer Joe Chiccarelli have made for a far more robust sound, which channels old school DIY post-punk (Kleenex, the Slits), and vintage riot grrrl via Pixies-style bittersweetness and big angular riffs.
60
God Is in the TV

Cherry Glazerr mix their views on equality with a brazen humour and youthful charm that will make it both entertaining in an relatable manner and empowering. As the appropriate album title of Apocalipstick suggests, they are a feminist-minded trio veraciously ready to explode at any moment.

This album was very predictable and formulaic, which I could forgive, but the music was annoying as fuck sooo...

Garnering ridiculously high AotY user reviews thus far while drawing resounding praise from Iggy Pop, Cherry Glazerr's Apocalipstick manages to be humorous, defiant, and captivating all while providing a satisfying take on contemporary prog rock. Headed by nineteen-year-old guitarist/vocalist Clementine Creevy and featuring keyboardist Sasami Ashworth, bassist Sean Redman, and drummer Tabor Allen, Cherry Glazerr effortlessly twists and turns between propulsive synth rock ("Humble ... read more

Tem algns bons momentos, mas num todo esse é o tipo de disco que não me faz sentir nada. É um garage rock bem cru, com músicas lideradas por guitarras ríspidas e nem tanto melódicas, por assim dizer. Justamente por essa proposta mas bruta e orgânica do rock, era de se esperar mais energia e vivacidade...o que aparece só em alguns momentos, como na ótima Sip O'Poison ou Nurse Ratched. Num todo, a produção faz essas ... read more
