cehryl Shares Video; ‘Time Machine’ EP Out 4/9
March 12, 2021 BY Nettwerk
cehryl builds up to the release of her new EP time machine, out 4/9 on Nettwerk, with a new video for “outside the party, inside the dream.”
Warm and enveloping, “outside the party, inside the dream” captures the soft, tranquil beauty of dreams themselves – peaceful, slightly bizarre, and cautious not to be disturbed. The tempo, a breezy, 5/4 roll, makes the song easy to sink into, a dreamy quality that this song, and much of cehryl’s music, goes for. The video follows her and three of her friends, from raw footage of their adventures together, and clear, drawn out visuals of them dragging their suitcases as they go their separate ways.
Watch “outside the party, inside the dream”:
Hong Kong-based singer-songwriter-producer cehryl has a voice as dulce and mellifluous as the songs she produces and writes to. Stories that explore the complexity of human emotion fill her dreamy, genre-fusing tracks, where her lyrical flair and classical training are on full display. From the strings she rips to the production, recording, and mixing, cehryl orchestrates every part of her songs. Her painfully relatable sonic gifts have gained her an international community of fans across the globe, and find her constantly revising and refining her sound. Her music videos for “Satellite” and “Moon Eyes” are heavily inspired by celebrated Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai, and mirror his films with cehryl’s own nuanced phantasmagoria—a fitting reflection of her expansive sound. Following high school in the UK, cehryl came to the United States to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston and, post-college, found herself in Los Angeles forming a tight-knit scene with friends Zack Villere, Mulherin, Dijon, Alex Szotak, and Soft Glas. “Moon Eyes” and single “Hide n Seek” (watch the video for it now) follow her buzzy 2019 debut album Slow Motion, which garnered her praise from Paper, Earmilk, i-D, Complex, and more. After touring with Still Woozy and Ravyn Lenae she was slated to be on the road last summer opening for Jeremy Zucker and for Cavetown. Both tours are on hold due to Covid-19 precautions for now, but cehryl still has plans in store for 2021 and beyond.
