AVANTE GARDE ELECTRO POP DUO CHERUB ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM MoM & DaD
OUT FEBRUARY 11, 2012 ON ELM AND OAK
FREE DOWNLOAD OF “DOSES AND MIMOSAS”
Melding a club-spawn, skull-shaking low end with a wall of guitars and talkbox pyrotechnics, the duo comprising Cherub also sport the silky smooth pipes to spread their appeal to all four corners of the dance floor… It’s like if Chromeo wasn’t trying to be funny.”
– Nashville Scene
In celebration of the imminent release of their new album MoM & DaD, Cherub are offering up a free download of “Doses and Mimosas.” This track is an exciting and progressive take on a modern pop song, delivering a serious punch of power and kick of sass to your eardrums. It’s unique and cutting edge, while still maintaining that danceability and fun that drives Cherub’s sound.
If you’re in Nashville, be sure to swing by The Mercy Lounge on February 11 for Cherub’s headlining performance in celebration of the album release!
Cherub is a progressive, avante garde, electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80’s funk, and art house indie. The members of Cherub, Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance, with a common goal to share a little bit of sex, a little bit of drugs, and a whole lot of love with people across the globe. Cherub’s music is a fresh electrified take on risqué pop music that brings to mind a blend of influential artists like Prince, Cut Copy, and The Dream. With a live show that is bouncing with energy, Cherub dances their way into the hearts of audiences from the first falsetto hook, until the very last delay filters out.
After receiving a warm response worldwide to the digital release on the band’s first record, Man of the Hour, and touring throughout the US and Mexico, Cherub has returned to the studio to complete work on their second album MoM & DaD, scheduled for release February 11th, 2012. This new batch of Cherub songs brings a fresh, uptempo electro feel to the familiar pop sensibilities showcased on their first record. Jordan Kelley’s studio production, clever songcraft, and silky smooth falsetto are complimented perfectly by Jason Huber’s live production and tube-driven guitar work.
Cherub’s versatility in songwriting and dance music production blurs conventional genre barriers. Ranging from grooving heartfelt ballads to risqué club bangers, Cherub takes the throwback vibes of old drum machines and washed out keyboards, and marries them with timeless writing and a very modern approach to music production and performance. Playful guitar licks and lush synthesizer textures dance around in the mix, as listeners are treated to sing-a-long hook after hook the entire way through the tunes.
