Review: Cherry Grind - A Room With A View

Cherry Grind greet us today from Adelaide, Australia. The four guys have been around since 2012, but released their debut album “A Room with a View” only in June this year. According to their Facebook bio, they write “truly original, modern music with a distinct groove”. Interesting enough, so let’s give it a go!

Well, what can one say? It’s a musical time travel, as we re-enter the sound of the 70s and early 80s. It’s old school hard rock, with blasting riffs and drums and lyrics revolving around sex, drugs and rock’n’roll, but indeed with a modern touch to it. Cool sound to listen to while having a beer or two, and so it’s no surprise that Cherry Grind have mainly toured pubs up until now. The album starts with the groovy ‘No One Home’, which sets the tone nicely for the upcoming 11 songs. The second track, ‘Dusty Road’, is a hymn and played up to perfection! While the next tracks have more of a rock’n’roll vibe to them, ‘See You Again’ also has elements of blues in it. The song that is definitely the best is also the last: ‘Tin Soldier’ has choirs, strong instruments and great singing. Definitely a track with potential to become a hit!

‘A Room with a View’ is, all in all, a very strong debut album, easy to listen to and sure to raise your mood. The songs are sometimes a bit too alike, so that the variation is lacking a bit. Nevertheless, a joy to listen to. 8/10.
