Clementine Creevy has released a new Cherry Glazerr track, “Soft Drink.”
Since December, Creevy has been showcasing the new direction for the project with new tunes. The new singles see Cherry Glazerr delving into more of an electronic, synth-based sound. “Soft Drink” follows the release of “Rabbit Hole” and “Big Bang.” This lithe new tune is all about trying to open up to someone new, and yearning for validation. “Soft Drink” comes accompanied by a trippy, colourful video.
“I started with that synth line,” Creevy explains. “It just popped into my head while I was driving and I like frantically recorded it into my voice memos while driving to the beach kind of down by Hermosa and Manhattan beach. I was randomly obsessed with the song ‘Naive’ by the Kooks and kind of listening to it a lot, and I think that sound crept in a little. The song is about yearning for some validation. Sometimes all you need is company and you’re not looking for anything specific, just someone to dance with. It was a lonely year obviously haha.”

“Rabbit Hole” marked Cherry Glazerr’s first new material in over 12 months. It’s an emphatic electronic-influenced jam featuring a sample from The Moderations’ “All Because Of You.”
“‘Rabbit Hole’ is about clawing back my identity,” frontwoman Clementine Creevy explains. “I often find myself acting a certain way to get someone else’s approval. Then it’s hard for me to find myself again. That’s what I was meditating on with this song.”
“Big Bang,” on the other hand, has more of an early 2000’s pop feel.
“The lyrics came from feeling like I was growing apart from someone who was close to me in my life, and the song is essentially about heartache, but it’s euphoric at the same time,” Creevy explains of the track. “That’s what I like about it – the intensity of those very personal feelings paired with a sort of huge, exposed energy. I feel like I was able to let a lot out with this song. It feels really special to me.”
