Cherry is an 8 track EP including a Joy Division's Cermony and an excellent addition to Jewel’s already impressive body of work. Lead cut Cherry is a smoother, more rhythmic piece of work, one which only hints at the dread and despair that bubbles underneath all of Jewel’s work. Headlight’s Glare continues that trend, feeling more sinewy and rhythmic than what one would expect from the band. They even upend things entirely with At Your Door, a song that sounds positively organic. The synths are largely gone, replaced with a warm organ that gives the song a pleasant feel that’s closer to 70s AM pop than it is to the band’s goth-disco hybrid. It all points to a more low-key approach from Chromatics, an effort on their part to sound less like the perpetual soundtrack of an awesome film and more like like a proper band. In this sense, Cherry is an interesting step forward and an exciting indicator of things to come.
