Baltimore, MD quartet Cherie Amour have shared their new single “Orlando”, out today via Equal Vision Records. On “Orlando” the band blends an infectious mix of pop-punk and hip-hop, as vocalist Trey Miller flows seamlessly from high-definition choruses to an emotionally-charged rap. The track depicts a conflicted relationship centered around the feeling of being used but still all in for the other person, as the video taps into a futuristic spin of this lyrical story between shots of the band performing. You can watch the video for “Orlando” here now and stream the song here.
Speaking on the song, Miller stated:
“‘Orlando’ starts out by painting a visual of walking in on your significant other with someone else. I wanted to show what I think many people have felt, but wouldn’t dare to express on wax. The rapped portion of the song gets emotionally aggressive, and I think that’s what makes it interesting. A simp anthem!”
Composed of Trey Miller (vocals), Casey Reid (guitar), Brendan Willis (guitar) and Ronnie Sherman (drums), Cherie Amour are out to carve their own path in the alternative music scene. Tossing aside their worries of being pigeon-holed into one particular genre, they have embraced the self-proclaimed title of “nu-punk”. Taking influence from a plethora of artists such as Linkin Park, MGK, Bring Me the Horizon, Don Broco, and Dance Gavin Dance, the band expertly crafts genre-blending sounds into each track they create. Cherie Amour’s first two singles “Burn” and “Orlando” personify an amalgamation of what fans can expect from the band in the future and highlight why this versatile act is one to keep an eye on.
