Premiere: Bluey Green – “Cherry Umbrella”


Out today from New Zealand-based artist Bluey Green (Mitch Horton), “Cherry Umbrella” is a dreamy delight. Swaying guitars and a piña colada reference provides ideal escapism, further reinforced by lines like “you and I should get away together.” Twinkling keys and warm brass further complement Horton’s lush vocal presence, pleading “let’s not talk about the future, for now.” If there’s an ideal track to ease into the weekend with, after an arduous week, it’s this. Bluey Green’s enamoring songwriting and chilled-out production resonates throughout.

“It’s a simple song about the pleasures of being on holiday with someone you love and drinking cocktails as the sun sets,” Horton says of the track.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2022’ Spotify playlist.
