Now Playing: Rina Sawayama – ‘Cherry’

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Japan-born and London-based pop magician Rina Sawayama dominates with her new single 'Cherry'. 'Cherry' is futuristic-pop perfection and so much more.

To simply label 'Cherry' addictive wouldn't do it justice — 'Cherry' is utterly exhilarating and one taste of it won't be enough. On a production level, the track soars beyond this galaxy. Hoost and Clarence Clarity, who shared their talents for the production on 'Cherry', have mixed energetic electronic percussion and atmospheric synths and the combination is delicious. Rina's vocals glisten over the lushness of 'Cherry' with ease. The lyrics are powerful, especially in the way they discuss identity and self-exploration; "When they tell you that you've got to stay the same / Even though you're not yourself".

'Cherry' is a must-listen for anyone searching for a meaningful and bewitching pop song to play on-repeat.
