I’ve been a big fan of Cherry Pickles for a bit, particularly since catching their set at SXSW (RIP) a few years back. Today we get news that they’ll be dropping their next album, doing so with this catchy early morning ditty to make you tap your toes. I was hooked by the opening guitar line; it has just the hint of a jangle that I love, then it gets wrapped in a nice dueling line of surfy pop. One of the reasons I’m so into this track is the way they kind of bring it about casually; they’re not rushing things, they’re in no hurry, just letting you get cleansed by the sweet bounce of good old fashioned pop rock. The Juice That’s Worth the Squeeze is out this October via PNKSLM.
We’re about to wind it up and disappear into the haze that is SXSW, but alas, we’ve got more news from overseas. Cherry Pickles will be here! And, they’ve responded to our questions, courtesy of their label PNKSLM! They’ve got a new record on the way in just under a month, so go on and enjoy the tunes!
