Clever bars and a catchy, memorable hook blend with nostalgic, cleanly mixed vocals for this addictively rhythmic and impressively intelligent new single.
Leading with the poetic imagery of its hook, Herick’s Cherry Bomb feels like it’s ready to impress and follows this anticipation up beautifully. Drop in with a stylish, simple beat, a recognisable riff – subtle and summer-ready – and some fast-paced, refreshing verses, and the whole thing quickly elevates itself to vastly greater plains.
Intriguing and seemingly quirky from the outset, a little deeper and more intense as the intricacies emerge, Cherry Bomb has a certain weight and integrity about – a story that captivates, bars that feel genuine and new, thoughtful and classic in their honesty and story-telling.
Far from the average hip hop track designed to be an easy anthem or loud and attention grabbing, Cherry Bomb reignites the original smartness and sharp identity of hip hop; artistry of purpose, intention. A total pleasure to let play. Hopefully there’s plenty more where this came from.
