Speaking on the song, Miller stated: “‘Orlando’ starts out by painting a visual of walking in on your significant other with someone else. I wanted to show what I think many people have felt, but wouldn’t dare to express on wax. The rapped portion of the song gets emotionally aggressive, and I think that’s what makes it interesting. A simp anthem!”

On ‘Orlando’, the Baltimore quartet blend an infectious mix of pop-punk and hip-hop, as vocalist Trey Miller flows seamlessly from high-definition choruses to an emotionally-charged rap. The track depicts a conflicted relationship centred around the feeling of being used but still all in for the other person, as the video taps into a futuristic spin of this lyrical story between shots of the band performing. Trey’s deep and honest poetry paired with the band’s dynamic sound makes ‘Orlando’ an exciting new single that is sure to take people by surprise.

Cherie Amour, Maryland’s nu-punk pioneers, are utilising an exciting opportunity for a fresh start. Previously known as One Life to LeadTrey Miller (vocals), Casey Reid (guitar), Brendan Willis (guitar) and Ronnie Sherman (drums), felt that their group’s evolving style and sound deserved a name that matched their overall style. This evolved sound, one that steps away from classic pop punk and the idea of being a “Warped Tour Band”, helps clarify the band’s intended direction of carving their own path in the scene.

Timing was on their side given the fact that they solidified their lineup right before the pandemic and ensuing chaos hit. This then made the surprise of producer Alan Day (Four Year Strong) reaching out to the band even sweeter and was “the moment we’ve been waiting for,” according to Trey. After creating many demos during the pandemic, the band headed to the studio with an eagerness to work with Alan.

‘Burn’, their first single under the new name, was the first track Alan dove into. According to the band, this single “ties together everything we’ve done, whether it be R&B, hip hop or hardcore.” The band’s excitement to share this song first comes from Alan‘s magic, in that he really didn’t change much on the original demo aside from the addition of the piano. It perfectly encapsulates what Cherie Amour is all about – “the first few verses are bouncy and danceable, but then you get to the heavy part and you don’t expect it,” describes Ronnie.

After ten years of friendship, Trey and Ronnie decided to officially form the band in 2015. A couple of lineup changes later, Brendan joined in early 2019 after meeting Ronnie through local shows, and Casey rounded out the group by joining in late 2019.

Taking influence from a plethora of artists such as Linkin Park, MGK, Bring Me the Horizon, Don Broco and Dance Gavin Dance, the band expertly concocts new genre-blending recipes per track. The band tossed aside their worries of being pigeon-holed into one particular genre and embraced the self-proclaimed title of nu-punk. The group creates a blend of hip hop, R&B, nu-metal, and punk.
