Cherub is made of up Jason Huber and Jordan Kelley, who both hail from Nashville, Tennessee. Their music is a mixture of downright sexy pop, funky electro beats and some sort of of hybrid symbiosis of Prince, David Bowie and maybe even a dash of George Michael (though I may be going a little far on that one). They've made a name for themselves writing songs about the only things that really matter in this life: sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Their recent buzz is due in part to the late-blooming virality of "Doses and Mimosas," and a nonstop string of live shows in which they shred on guitars, talk boxes and other on-stage accessories that turn the venue into a sort of disco-fueled brothel.
I'm so thrilled to see a duo that I've followed for years be on the cusp of their major label album debut on Columbia Records, which is truly a momentous achievement. The first single from the album is an anthem to a certain pale fairy dust that thrived in New York discos and is responsible for most of Rick James' celebrated antics. It's on-brand as usual, and it's an impressive preview of the duo's forthcoming album.
David really hopes his mom is not reading this. @DLGarber
