Splitting the difference between indie rock, shoegaze, and avant-pop, we have a machine groove, intricate synth flourishes, and a big pop vocal. The harmonies are deliciously inventive, and the vibe is future-dark like a scene from Bladerunner.

With a gently sardonic wit and a vivid memory, CHERRIE LAUREL is processing her past, and decides to take a fresh approach to life, with an eye only to the future. It is a powerful thing, to accept the possibility of each moment. Many of us, perhaps, would do well to have our spell broken.

CHERRIE LAUREL is an avant-pop electronic producer and performer based out of Vancouver, Canada. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
