Ahhh… the power of the internet. These days all you need is either a Youtube, Myspace, or ReverbNation page to help get your music out.. But even with all the new and helpful online distribution tools available, it’s still somewhat difficult for an indie/unsigned band to be widely heard. There’s just so much music out theses days that it is impossible to catch everything- which is why I want to highlight London based, electro/indie rock band Black Cherry.
Fronted by the awesome Megane Quashie, Black Cherry has spent the past couple of years making a name for themselves over seas and here in the States, performing at last years SXSW and the UK’s infamous Glastonbury’s ‘Other Stage’.
However, the name still remains to be unfamiliar to many and although the video is a year old, Black Cherry who has one EP under their belt, This is Control, (which is available on iTunes) is continuing to make a solid effort at self promotion and has yet to let the lack of online fame hinder their determination to break through. And that’s exactly what I like to see in a band – Peep the video below.
