The name of this Scottish four piece’s band, Cherri Fosphate, is as confusingly delicious as is their music, without the confusing part, it’s just delicious! Back in 2012, this foursome decided they wanted to keep their rock and roll t’s crossed and dot their i’s but get rid of the frills and flourishes, and bring the stripped back n’ raw sound of New York rock to their homeland of Scotland. They have clearly accomplished just that. They’ve developed a simple sound that makes listeners happy in all the right ways, without overstimulating as a lot of rock music and do these days.
Cherri Fosphate is Jonny Sharpe (vocals & guitar), Alan Robinson (lead guitar), Jordan Lannigan (bass) and Sonny Kainth (drums) and back in 2013 they released their debut EP Burning Youth. This EP was very well received and since then have been playing shows with the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen, Honeyblood and others and playing festivals like Brew at the Bog and Belladrum.
They just premiered a new single/download in Clash Magazine called “Auf Wiedersehen” which is an upbeat garage indie rock track with an irresistible chorus.
Look for the new full length that includes “Auf Wiedersehen”, We Didn’t Come Here to Say Goodbye, which will be out late November. For more on Cherri Fosphate, check out their Facebook page and official website.
