Description

Cherry is the new bedroom-pop project from Russell Edling, the ex-singer and songwriter of Kite Party. The concept of investigating and discovering only to be humbled by what one finds is the grassy field that Cherry wanders aimlessly through on their debut, Dumbness. The record's first lyrical idea comes in the form of "Everybody's dumb / go and ask anyone." The great equalizer of universal human foolishness. We all take ourselves too seriously, we are too precious, too self-obsessed as we walk down the street thinking about cheeseburgers, dogshit clinging to the treads in our business casual footwear.

Musically, Dumbness covers a lot of ground; stopping momentarily in may different stylistic regions only to move on. One gets a sense that the band is turning stones, thinking "maybe there is something under here." Through tales of nostalgic skateboarding adventures, fictional narrations of love and death, and slapstick word vomit, Cherry makes an honest effort to communicate. To hold thee down for a few moments just to say "hi hello we are all here together." Dumbness is a meditation on the great equalizing force of human foolishness. Lovers hurt one another, dreams are meant to be woken from, shoelaces untie, and justice is jailed by random circumstance. We put fools into power, and power greens into our smoothies.

"I wanted to write about expectation and sing about disappointment," Edling explains. "It's important to greet failure with a grin and cackle in the face of fear. Musicians must give all of themselves to an art form that so rarely gives back. To exist is to navigate through so many obstacles, finding friends and foes in impossibly unlikely circumstances. I do believe there is beauty in that, but it is a beauty born of this world and thus it is mostly dumb."
