We all miss the 90s.
A time where grunge ruled the airwaves and slip dresses were acceptable attire in any circumstance. Good news for people who love good news, Japan via London artist Cream with a K (a.k.a. Lee Tatlock) is here to fill that void with her brand new electro-grunge single “Terrible Voices”. Fuzzy guitars paired with sticky sweet synths and Tatlock’s signature etherial vocals, her latest solo effort is equal parts Smashing Pumpkins, and St. Vincent – a refreshing burst of pop with integrity that pays homage to her favorite era. Already a familiar face in Japan from her previous band Neko Punch, this new solo project is sure to turn some heads.

“It’s dark and I feel like it has this awful sense of surrender… but it is also as if it’s driving towards the future…in a funny and optimistic way.”
“Terrible Voices” was one of the first songs I wrote in embarkment of my new music adventure as Cream with a K. I wrote it in a shady Starbucks near my house in Tokyo during the winter months. It was a scary time of change for me at that moment. It’s dark and I feel like it has this awful sense of surrender… but it is also as if it’s driving towards the future…in a funny and optimistic way. Although I never set out to sound like someone else in particular I feel like this song channeled a lot of my childhood influence.
