Led by the fanciful charm of singer/multi-instrumentalist Tim Karmouche (The Murlocs, Dreamin’ Wild), Crepes came about in Ballarat, Australia through high-school friends Nick (drums) and Pat Robbins (bass).
The band later grew to include lead guitarist Sam Cooper (Sagamore, formerly of Fraser A. Gorman) and keyboardist Jackson Dahlenburg (Tropical Snakes, Robot Fox), after relocating to Melbourne. A much-adored EP release in 2015 saw the quintet gain supports with the likes of DIIV, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard and Pond’s Nicholas Allbrook, whilst earning praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, NME, Triple J and BIRP (landing a spot in their coveted 'Best of 2014' compilation), along with Bobby Alessi (of Alessi Brothers fame) for their cover of 1976 hit ‘Seabird’.
Channeling inspirations as diverse as DEVO, Gary Numan and Cass McCombs, Crepes’ retro-edged pop ranges from the jaunty, surf-glazed jangle of "Cold Summers", to the dreamy and introspective synth strains of "Size of Your Town".
Following a brief hiatus, 2017 sees Crepes reemerge with a newfound gusto and promise of a debut LP.
