Cherry Glazerr’s successful Burger Records debut earlier this year with their album, “Haxel Princess,” provided the momentum for their sultry new track, “Had Ten Dollaz,” out October 28th on Suicide Squeeze. “Dollaz” came to music lovers attention in the most unusual of ways: the high school indie band’s tune was hand picked by designer Hedi Slimane to soundtrack Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall 2014 runway show. The track is noticeably bluesier than usual for the young trio - sounding like an Amy Winehouse B-side that inadvertently slipped through the cracks. Frontwoman Clementine Creevy is cool as a cucumber, howling out with conviction, “Well I know that you notice my ways…and I feel, I feel your gaze…” Vicious percussion courtesy of Hannah Uribe blends perfectly with Sean Redman’s chill vibes on bass to create a multilayered masterpiece that provides the perfect foray into a more mature sound. Check out the track below!
Running at ten tracks deep, the album is rife with hard beats, versatile production and a few collaborations thrown in for good measure; most notably his collab with fellow dubstep star Datsik and the legendary Ragga Twins.
"Zipper" is a rip roaring bass workout while "Imprint", featuring Tkay Maidza, switches up the vibe with its trap/hip hop hybrid beats and lyrics. Then there's the first single from the LP "Hellcat", a fusion of dubstep synths centered around big room house tempos, again showing the diversity of MUST DIE's production. Switching into other themes are tracks such as "Star Throne", "Feather" and "Together."
