Cherryade - Houdini

What better way to kick off another week of new music than with London-based duo Cherryade, who have today delivered yet another slice of hip-hop-infused electro-pop perfection entitled "Houdini". Written by the duo themselves and produced by Lewis Gardiner (PRIDES, KLOE), "Houdini" serves as the follow up to "Fractured Fairytales" and "The Crown", both of which garnered a plethora of support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Spotify's New Music Friday, Apple Music, NYLON, CLASH, PopJustice and more.

Speaking on the track, the duo says:

"'Houdini' was written about our experiences with religion and going to a religious school. The priest was later convicted for being a pedophile, the music teacher was apparently fired for cheating on his wife with a male student, and all the time we were the one’s being judged and told what was right and wrong. When you're young and naive the last thing you need is more people telling you who you should be, and once you're caught in that web it's not an easy thing to get out of."

Listen to "Houdini" below.
