  • They’ve just released the third single from their upcoming EP

Keep up with the latest music interviews, news and reviews here.

Their newest single is called Alice, which begins with driving guitar riffs and ends with an inevitable pop-rock explosion. Charlton says the dreamy tune is about Alice in Wonderland and long distance relationships.

“The idea of the song is based around Alice from Alice in Wonderland and encapsulates the essence of love from a distance,” lead singer Jacob Charlton said in a statement.

“Long distance relationships are something I could never get my head around so I wanted to venture into this feeling of longing through the phone and first embrace through a character that feels very summer-esque and dreamy, to tie in with the feel of the song’s instrumentation.”

The new release is accompanied by a music video directed by Cian Marangos and written by Charlton himself.

Cherry have announced they’ll (hopefully) play their first headline gig at Brunswick’s Stay Gold on 16 October, supported by Taylah Carroll & Damaged Goods Club.
