SECOND ALBUM FROM THE COPENHAGEN ALL GIRL GARAGE BAND
The Copenhagen based all girl garage rock band Cherry Overdrive is about to release their second full length album “Go Prime Time, Honey!” at the Swedish label Heptown Records.
In 2007 the monster rock garage hit “Reptiles” from Cherry Overdrive, got on regular rotation airplay by the national Danish radio station DR P3. The first album Clear Light was very well received outside Scandinavia. The girls were asked twice to participate direct on national Spanish radio (RNE 3), and MTV’s Dirty Sanchez asked for the permission for using 5 numbers from the album.
With two new girls on drums and bass, a lot of touring in Germany and Spain, gigs in England, Denmark and Sweden the band is sharper than ever on stage.
Last year Cherry Overdrive, with the vinyl single “I’ll Be Gone” from 2009 got chosen among 1200 artists to participate in “KarriereKanonen” (The Career Canon). One of the greatest talent development projects in Denmark, arranged by DR P3, KODA and Roskilde Festival.
The second album release “Go Prime Time, Honey!” is full of attitude energy and catchy rock ‘n’ roll numbers. Music inspired by the early punk wave and the psychedelic sixties. Melodic guitar riffs are followed by the special rough cherry lead vocal wish gives the more pop influenced songs a rough edge.
“Go Prime Time, Honey!” was created by the Cherry girls and the producer Anders H. Mortensen. The album was primarily recorded in the studio of Nikolaj Noerlund, Sauna Recording Studio, where artists like “The Ravonettes”, “Baby Woodrose” and “Mew” have enjoyed the special natural warm retro sound.
Cherry Overdrive will be touring Denmark this fall 2010 and got upcoming tours in Germany, Sweden, Spain and Turkey for 2011.
