Witterings from an old indie kid
If you want vintage sounding, C86 inspired indiepop then A Certain Smile will be right up your street.
Cherry Bomb is loud and fuzzy in just the way pop music should be. The sound has been revived before of course. The label mentions The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (well maybe they meant the early stuff when they mimicked the Lazy era My Bloody Valentine) but POBPAH have long faded out of earshot. A Certain Smile give to spirit to such a sound as previously demonstrated on 2017s excellent Fits & Starts. Thankfully they have, based on this track, carried on where they left off.
The track itself is taken from the Bae EP that is released via Jigsaw Records this coming Friday and it’s available on vinyl and digital formats. Pre-order from here.
