Like an atom, Seattle quartet, Throw Me The Statue appear to exist in a state of equilibrium. Creaturesque – their latest full-length release – sees the band perfectly governing the pop-rock genre. What is present is a balance of positive and negative energy as provided by the multi-instrumental quartet.

Opening Creaturesque is the sunny, casual melody of “Waving at the Stone” with “Pistols” offering a bare side to the band and a surprising contrast to the mood set by “Waving at the Stone”. The album weaves in out from bubbly pop to somber lo-fi rock making the pace of Creaturesque unpredictable but welcome. With the turn of a new track, new sounds emerge as if Throw Me The Statue are evolving right before your
eyes ears. Key tracks include “Noises”, “Cannibal Rays”, “Snowshoes” and “Dizzy From the Fall”.
