Any fans of Anna Calvi, Nadine Shah and St Vincent will want to delve into the evocatively avant-garde debut single, Concept of Love, from ‘bummer pop’ artist, Cheery.
The Kansas-based artist mixed spiritual earthy tones with chilling noir pop electronica for her imploringly dynamic vocal timbre to fall into. You’d seriously be hard-pressed to find more gravitas in another 2021 indie debut. The vulnerability in the vocals and the alchemy in the instrumentals prove to be a potent cocktail that resulted in mainstream potential.
Concept of Love is now available to stream on Spotify.
