A little more than two years after the critically acclaimed “J'entends la bête”, Cherry Chérie is back with a second album, Adieu Veracruz, released on Coyote Records. The band celebrated the arrival of their new album on October 17, during a launch party at the Cinema Beaubien.
As suggested by the single "The Braconnier" which is currently running in many stations, including ÉNERGIE (Future star IHeart), Cherry Cherie changes tone for their new album. Their retro-trash abandons its candy color to take dark colors, taking more sinuous and tempestuous paths, without however putting aside their strong and catchy choruses.
This second album definitely smells of the sea. Its opulent guitars with surf echoes set a scene where melodies that honor the great hymns of the sixties grow. Concept album, Adieu Veracruz is the soundtrack of a film noir that will never see the light of day. Once an idyllic seaside resort, Veracruz in Mexico is now a worn-out, faded and plagued by crime paradise. Is this the unstoppable fate of everything that at first sight seems too perfect?
