TOTD: HONGZA ‘Cherry’
Building on top of his previous release ‘December’ the British Vietnamese songwriter provides a reworked Dream-Pop ballad of Harry Styles Cherry that takes you on an ambient rollercoaster with waves of reverberating guitars, heart-rendering vocal textures and a cathartic breakdown leaving you to miss someone you haven’t even met.
Traditionally pursuing music as a profession is frowned upon in a Vietnamese Household, but this has only cemented Hongza’s passion for the arts as he previously fronted Shoegaze band DAZE who shared stages with Larkins, Cassia, Judas & is now on travelling through his own musical journey as a solo artists. Hongza sonically will remind you of the sounds of The 1975, Wolf Alice & Jaws.
Served as the third beautifully ambient instalment to conclude what has been an enthralling release campaign, he hints the soundscape is to enter a new phase with a fuller band sound in 2021
