Originally from Montreal, Cherry Chérie has made her mark on the Quebec and Canadian music scene since 2011. A little more than two years after the critical success of J'entends la bête, Cherry Chérie released her second album in October 2017, Adieu Veracruz, under the label Coyote Records.
As suggested by the excerpt "Le Braconnier" which is currently running in many stations, including ÉNERGIE (Future star IHeart), Cherry Cherie changes tone for this new album. His retro-trash style abandons the candy color to take obscure hues, taking more sinuous and tempestuous paths, without however putting aside his strong catchy refrains.
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 dark movie that will never see the light of day. Once an idyllic seaside resort, Veracruz in Mexico is now a worn-out paradise devoured by crime. Is this the unstoppable fate of everything that at first sight seems too perfect?
For the recording, Cherry Chérie isolated them self for more than two months in Shefford to work with renowned director Pierre Duchesne (Richard Desjardins, Kevin Parent, Richard Séguin) of Studio Ouïe-Dire. Together, they developed rich sounds, superimposing vintage textures, to ultimately arrive at a sound wall at the most current rendering.
Pierre Duchesne also put his personal touch on keyboards, adding to the collaborations of Ariane Vaillancourt with the arrangements of the voices, Alex Dodier on the saxophone and Paul Aubry also on the keyboards. Critics are unanimous; Adieu Veracruz is the best album of the group and foreshadows a bright future.
