Yassassin – Cherry Pie

Yassassin are an alt-rock five-piece from London. They released two successful singles last year, Social Politics and Pretty Face, and now they have dropped Cherry Pie, their first offering of the year which comes alongside the announcement of the release of their debut EP Vitamin Y on September 1st. Heavily drenched in a ’90s-inspired soundscape, the song is built around hazy guitar hooks, light shoegaze textures and warbling vocals; reminiscences of acts such as Dream Wife, Honeyblood and Zuzu are there and we obviously love that.

Speaking about the track, the band said: “‘Cherry Pie’ definitely has a dual attitude. It has always sounded dark and sleazy; it’s a confession to an obsession that in the end spirals into madness. The song embodies the mania and infatuation of when you’ve just met someone but you have no idea what’s going on in each other’s heads at all. It’s exciting, but overwhelming and suddenly,mpassion can turn into irrationality. Everyone can relate to that feeling – being blinded by desire.

Cherry Pie comes together with an official video directed by Erik Pardos Olsen, with the plot that unravels around Yassassin’s drummer Ruth and her deadly revenge’s plan upon the rest of the band.
