It goes without saying that Nasty Cherry have had quite the come up, their very creation as a band starting as a Netflix series back in 2019. The key link which holds them all together is pop icon Charli XCX who picked them all to play together and form Nasty Cherry, her presence is still felt several EPs later co-writing single Her Body and being involved in other aspects of the writing. Another key member of their team is producer Yves Rothman known for his work on Yves Tumor and Miya Folick, whose magic floats throughout this project. However, amongst these names and buzz it is clear they have created a unique voice for themselves which demands to be heard. Lyrics are not just that of lead vocalist, Gabi Bechtel, but of all the members; who through a collaborative approach to writing lyrics see an amalgamation of memories and experiences synthesized and expressed into tracks which enigmatically allow for multiple ways not only for them to feel their own experiences within this project but for the listeners too.
I joined Nasty Cherry on the brink of when their EP came out, a palpable atmosphere of excitement in the air, not just for its release but to be able to talk about tracks people hadn’t heard before and they hadn’t chatted about yet. Georgia joined from Palm Springs lying on her bed in a mirrored room, whilst Gabi talked whilst getting her makeup done on a set of some sorts, the others hidden behind their zoom icons (who knows what they were up to) - clearly however they were all living their best lives so we got stuck in.
