CALVERT – “Please With a Cherry”


“Please With a Cherry” is a track that shows a confident, buzzing pop sound from NYC artist CALVERT. It opens the artist’s debut EP, This Beautiful Life, Vol. 1, streaming here. The track’s music video has already earned over 300k views on Twitter, partly due to the energetic and infectious nature of the dance-encouraging music video, and partly due to the track’s easily addictive pop sound. Gyrating synths and charismatic vocals in the verses lead seamlessly to a chorus bursting with lit-up energy, maintaining pop conventions while still aiming for some sense of differentiation in the driving electro-pop pulse and vocal presence.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Best of January 2019.
