Looking for something new to liven up your music playlist? Make way for Cherryade, pop music’s newest troublemakers who are ready to rock your world.
The duo, made up of Alex and Ella, are ready to burst into your life with their infectious punk-edged synth pop track ‘Houdini’. Produced by Lewis Gardiner (Prides, Kloe), the track was self-penned by Cherryade and speaks of their experiences with religion and going to a religious school. With numerous controversies in the school surrounding the staff, the song discusses how it was always the students who would be judged for their actions instead.
Of the track, the duo said: “All the time we were the one’s being judged and told what was right and wrong. When you’re young and naive the last thing you need is more people telling you who you should be, and once you’re caught in that web it’s not an easy thing to get out of.”
‘Houdini’ is a tongue-in-cheek, hip hop infused offering, and is fairly reminiscent of Everyll’s ‘Blah Blah Blah’. The childhood friends have certainly delivered an in-your-face track which will be ringing in your ears for the rest of the day.
The track follows on from Cherryade’s previous singles ‘Fractured Fairytales’ and ‘The Crown’. The London based duo have garnered support from numerous outlets for these tracks, including BBC Radio 1, Spotify’s New Music Friday, and Apple Music.
