Cherryade – Only Fan / Sick! 

Release Date: Out Now

Excellent London duo Cherryade are back with their take on the pandemic via this double single and it is typically infectious and on the money. The first of the two tracks, ‘Only Fan’, kicks in with a static beat and Ella’s classically abrupt vocals singing about the current shift for OnlyFans accounts that allow sex workers to make a living and career in a more safe and self-controlled space. “VAT free, do I make you hot?” Ella sings like the most British Hip-Hop artist you’ve ever heard.

The second track is ‘Sick!’ which has a more laid-back vibe but turns Covid into a competition over who can be more sick, who has it worst and who gets the most attention for it. Cherryade are that most British thing of laughing in the face of adversity but bottled and presented with processed beats and synthetic melodies. Keep it coming you two, it’s going to be a loooooong winter.
