The Plastic Cherries – “Tomorrow”


Bridging modern dream-pop with a ’70s spacey nostalgia, “Tomorrow” is a gorgeous new single from Salt Lake City-based band The Plastic Cherries. The track is part of the band’s upcoming concept album, The Plastic Cherries on the Moon, which takes inspiration from “Ziggy Stardust & vintage sci-fi.”

Lush vocal entrancement and gliding piano lines stir alongside a warming bass line. Glistening guitar additions appear thereafter, with vocals letting out “oh, how you shine in the distance, brilliant and free,” — espousing a sense of adoration, melancholic yet hopeful. “Where will we go?” they traverse into the title-referencing ghostliness and the “I’m all yours,” declaration. “Tomorrow” is a dazzling display in spellbinding, dreamy love, propelled by breathtaking vocal work, sparkling piano lines, and orchestral touches. “Tomorrow” has us firmly anticipating the band’s upcoming concept album.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

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