Since being unveiled as one of Charli XCX's favorite new groups (and collaborators) earlier this year, Nasty Cherry have gained plaudits for their spunky, victorious debut anthem "Win." It's a good one, and it's easily replayable, but so far, it's been the only one to their name. Until now.
On Tuesday (May 28), the hybrid British-American band — comprised of drummer Deborah Knox-Hewson, guitarist Chloe Chaidez, bassist Georgia Somary, and singer Gabbriette Bechtel — dropped their next song, a gauzy and vulnerable slice of dream-pop called "What Do You Like in Me," produced and co-written by Planet 1999. Fittingly, it arrived with an equally gossamer video that dips into goth and macabre elements through the lens of an '80s late-night cable offering.
There's a simply terrific amount of candles and skulls here in the Indiana Piorek-directed clip, and Bechtel (who co-directed) vamps around like Elvira for a good portion of the video. It's as moody as the "Win" video was punchy, but there's also an air of playfulness that dominates the scene.
If it feels a little like a homemade project, that's because it was. "We used all of our own clothes and 'props' from our homes and friends to help out," Bechtel told Paper. "There's a lot of Juul fog featured and a lot of love went into making it so we hope you love it," the band wrote on Instagram. Watch the full clip above.
