Love, Sophie – “Cherry Pie”


The entrancing “Cherry Pie” is the latest success from Love, Sophie. The Los Angeles-based artist wowed with debut track “Blush” a year ago, and again crafts a dreamy, hooky gem with this second single. Relaxed vocals and twinkling keys set a serene scene. Twangy guitars follow, with a starry ballad-ready feeling building to the glistening chorus. “You were holding hands with me, like you meant it,” the artist sings over swaying guitars, punctuated with delectable twangy allure alongside backing dreamy vocals thereafter.

Describing the single, Sophie says: “Especially in times of isolation it’s easy to look back with rose colored lenses. There’s a lot to unpack in the paradox of a bittersweet memory, which is what [she hopes] to connote in this track.”

“Cherry Pie” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
