In recent years we’ve seen the indie-pop scene bless us with so many talented artists. However, Cherry is a singer-songwriter that has caught our attention the most. With her outstanding debut single “Help me breathe” featuring Geo Moon, she has the potential to become one of the biggest names.
The charming young singer has everything to seduce us: a singular and unique voice, energy that directly touches your soul.
First off let me just say how much I love the cover art, which has a colorful, retro avant-garde aesthetic. The song itself represents the best of what indie pop/rock has to offer. Featuring light guitars and pleasant vocals that go far beyond the level of skill required for this genre, this is just a delightful jam to listen to.
There are elements of alternative, twee, and folk, but honestly, this is just a beautiful indie rock song. I love that music this artistically pure and good still exists. Let’s hope it gets the exposure it deserves.
The instrumental is everything that we like: minimalistic, mystic, and heavy. We told you, it made our day! Thank you, Cherry!

I’ve start to sing when I was around 10 years old and from that age I always had hobbies and extra-curricular activities that allowed me to keep singing.

4.What genre would you consider yourself?
Alternative pop rock, indie rock or pop-punk.
5.Tell us about your latest track or Video ( what is it all about)–Please explain the concept or message.
My first single was dropped just now and it is about a mad love. When you love someone to the point your love is strong than anything, although it is also a destructive thing to your inner self because you would do anything in the world to protect it.
Also, after a lot of panic attacks, sleepless nights and a whole lockdown with the love of your life you just realize that love is always going to be there but you really need some time alone to breathe and see things clearly again.
