First arriving in a shower of hype and buzz thanks to their association with svengali Charli XCX and a Netflix series around their formation – it would be all too easy for Nasty Cherry to get lost within their own noise.
Their new ‘The Movie EP’ shows a band continuing to evolve – not with wild, disparate swerves, but rather a developing voice of their own. From the smooth, melodic earworm of ‘What’s The Deal’ to the smoldering jam of ‘Her Body’, Nasty Cherry are proving themselves as smart pop magpies of the highest order. Plus, when reading the Charli XCX co-penned ‘Six Six Six’ was inspired by both The Cure and Jessica Simpson (see the Artist Guide in Dork’s April issue), it’s nigh on impossible not to be onside.
The latest step on the road for Nasty Cherry, this is one movie that deserves to become a franchise deal.
