Jessie Baylin: “Creepers (Young Love)”

After becoming a mother, Nashville’s Jessie Baylin shied away from making music, but creativity being creativity, inspiration exploded out of her without any notice. She sat down with longtime producer and songwriter Richard Swift–who’s worked with the Black Keys, the Shins, and Foxygen–and the pair wrote five songs in four hours. Baylin sought this same speed in the studio, and just nine days of recording led to a new album called Dark Place, out April 7. “Creepers (Young Love)” starts the record with a bang, matching Baylin’s smoky voice with a buzzing riff and a little bit of Southern California magic. “There is always someone you have a strange and dangerous attraction to,” Baylin says about the song, and sure enough, there’s plenty of darkness to match the sentiment.
