This is the last song we will ever premiere on Project U, and god, this sums it up pretty well.
It’s about as poptastic as it gets, it’s glistening, it’s naughty, it’s similes galore, stacked harmonies for days, it’s a total earworm.
The artist is super exciting. Second song ever. Clara Fable tells us that some of her references include Kim Petras, Dorian Electra, Robyn and The Veronicas, who all feel fairly present on this song without impeding on her individuality.
Cherry Ripe was originally written by one of the best young hidden gem songwriters in Sydney right now, Jasey Fox. The pair met on a sabbatical to Japan a few years back.
“I remember him showing it to me years ago in my tiny Japanese apartment. Just simple piano chords and his brilliant idea. I fell in LOVE with the concept. I was going through a breakup at the time with someone I thought was my everything – my first girlfriend to be exact. Such a turning point in my personal life and I felt it fit so perfectly, surviving love and loss and the horror that comes along with that, ya know?”
It’s a horror-pop belter, with a spooky film clip to go with it. It was shot and directed by Felicity Jayn Heath with VMA nominated Andrew Sandler (Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Yungblud and more) as Executive Producer.
Perfect in time for Halloween, but addictive enough to be great all year round. Nice fucking work.
