The first few pensive notes in Piff Cherry’s recently released single Ride set you up for a stylistic feat of Indie in the same vein as the likes of the National. Yet, the ever-evolving soundscape was given free rein without the constraints of genre boundaries.
With elements of Hip Hop, Indie, Pop and NeoSoul all weaved into the short and sweet mix, it’s dynamically captivating from start to finish. There’s little room to wonder why Piff Cherry has garnered plenty of hype with her distinctively seductive sound. The contrast between the plaintive keys and the sharp rattle of the Trap-style beats adds enough depth to Ride that it’s all too easy to sink into.
