Synthwave producer don.a.a.ron has just released his 4th single this year. Simply titled “Cherry”, he has collaborated once again with singer-songwriter Emi Wong who had previously sang and co-wrote his debut single “Over U” in January. “Cherry” was influenced by the new wave sound that dominated MTV in the early 80s with hints of Cyndi Lauper, The Buggles and The Cars thrown into the mix.
The song is the product of an idea that the musician/producer and Emi put together one afternoon while writing it. “Cherry” was borne out of the duo’s sentiment that there are alot of people singing about love or sex but most of them are about how a man feels towards a woman, or how a woman feels towards a man. As a celebration of other kinds of love, “Cherry” represents the freedom people have right now to be and express themselves in their own unique ways. Or as don.a.a.ron says, “no matter what turns you on.” This is the second collaboration between don.a.a.ron and Emi, who is currently living in New York.
“Emi has a magnificent voice. I also love writing with her because she is full of ideas and easily shares a common vision of the final product whenever I present her with some music or demo tracks. Expect more from us.”
