Nashville, Tennessee band Heavy Cream are veterans of their city's local music scene, regularly playing basement shows around town over the past few years, and touring the country often. Heavy Cream are three girls and one male bass player (reverse the patriarchy!) and their live shows are known for being rambunctious and rowdy. On May 8th they will release their second album, Super Treatment, on Infinity Cat Recordings, the label run by Nashville’s own JEFF the Brotherhood.
The album is produced by Ty Segall, and he adds a lot of his signature rough guitar-rock sound and distortion to the record, successfully capturing more of the energy Heavy Cream creates at their live shows than was present on their debut record, Danny. On their first single from Super Treatment, “Johnny Johnny,” the band pounds away, shrieking about a boy they think is cool but not theirs. They get their Joan Jetts out with extended guitar riffs and forceful drumbeats. Heavy Cream just finished up a northeastern tour with Hunx, but if you missed them they will probably be back soon. You can listen to “Johnny Johnny” below, and get Super Treatment when it comes out on May 8th.
