Little information seems to be available about New York via Miami newcomers Cherry Jungle — the duo is made up of Curtis Nystrom and Sam Friend, they like dinosaurs, and their debut track called “Dinosaurs” is catchy as all hell.
Both artists come from strong indie pop backgrounds, Friend being the front man for Sam Friend & The Freckles and Nystrom a former member of Ms Mr. The two have come together to make a tune that’s bouncy, really catchy and super danceable. The hefty bass hook is lightened up by Friend’s nasally voice, while the drumbeat in the back keeps your booty moving. If “Dinosaurs” is any indication of Cherry’s Jungle’s future, it’s as bright as the meteor that made them extinct.
