BEST NEW SONGS: CHERRYADE - THE CROWN

7/18/16
Cherryade - The Crown

We’ve got a transmission from the London underground for you today, although based on the quality of “The Crown,” Cherryade won’t be unknown for much longer.

You could’ve convinced me that this was a new Charli XCX track, and that’s about the highest compliment I can pay a pop song in 2016. You can also hear the unmistakable influence of Maya, as well as PC Music and Sleigh Bells.

“The Crown” is a clever double entendre about the archaic British Royalty and western pop culture's infatuation with celebrity (probably). “I’m a high-profile. Do you want my mobile? Do you search for my name in your free time? Ain’t hard when you got nothing to live for,” are just a few of the lyrics that take a swipe at people who’d rather talk obsessively about others than do something with their own lives.

The British duo told Idolator that this song was the band realizing “We don’t give a shit anymore.” Everyone should give less shits than they already do about life, so I whole-heartedly support this sentiment. It helps that I can’t get this song out of my head.

 

CHERRYADE “THE CROWN”

Whomever these blokes are, they sound like the future. Can't wait to hear more from them.

As always, thanks for stopping by Bitcandy, where now we’re gonna spend the rest of the day listening to Mason Jennings “The Crown” and other songs inspired by royal headwear.
