Image: 1589658 For their 7th release, Cherries brings a different sound to your speakers, created by the return of "the first lady of modern funk" AMALIA, in collaboration with a new group, out of the West Coast underground, Social Lovers.

With this release, the Social Lovers sound takes you downstairs to the basement after-hours party, where people dance close into the wee hours of the night. The A-Side, 'So Right (feat. AMALIA)' leads off with an enchanting arpeggiation, while the synth and drums connect with AMALIA’s spacey and soulful vocals to create a lush, warm pillow of funk to your ear drums. AMALIA waxes deep on a lover who is the perfect one, but soon becomes the wrong one, a melodic reminder that we are all looking for something real.

'Call Me Up', the B-Side brings Cherries closer to its Chicago roots with an instrumental, soulful house inspired tune, full of percussion and natural ebbs and flows of synth chords and strong melody. Social Lovers' lush and polished production is showcased here with a brief taste of the smooth street soul sounds that the collective five thrives on, to keep you dancing in the basement ‘til the break of dawn.

ABOUT SOCIAL LOVERS

With influences from the different cities of LA, San Francisco, and Seattle, the Social Lovers (DJ Matty P (producer), Megan Doherty (vocals), Chris Letson (drums), Ryan Doherty (producer) & Joe Nunez (guitar)) are taking over the West Coast with their unique, underground sound. After meeting in high school back in 2005 where they were heavily influenced by the sounds of bossa nova, disco, funk, and soft rock, they all picked up their gear and bags towards the land of women, weed and weather, and created their signature sound, ‘street funk with a splash of class’. They have previously released a limited edition cassette of all original tracks on Cherries Records.
