Cherie Amour Blends Hip-Hop With Punk For Latest Single, ‘Love’s Not Your Thing’

Baltimore-based quartet Cherie Amour released their new single and video “Love’s Not Your Thing” via Equal Vision Records. Their second follow up to acclaimed 2021 debut EP Internal Discussions, the band is back flexing their signature “nu-punk” sound, expertly combining elements of pop-punk, R&B, hip-hop, and metal. Produced by Alan Day (Four Year Strong), the track stands out with huge, radio friendly production and bombastic electronic elements. Not content to rest on their alternative laurels, the band mixes in an undercurrent of  mainstream hip-hop and R’n’B that elevates the track into unique sonic territory. While “Love’s Not Your Thing” will appeal to a wide range of music lovers, it is anything but formulaic – instead, it serves as a reminder that Cherie Amour has perfected a sound totally their own. You can stream and watch “Love’s Not Your Thing” here. 

The band has this to say about the inspiration for their latest song: 

“This is another one we pulled from the OLTL (our previous band) era of demos and it’s actually the track that helped us pick a new band name. It’s about finding someone you like and getting to know them over the course of a few dates but you realize they’re the type of person that likes to keep up drama in a relationship, otherwise they classify it as ‘boring’. I really liked the use of ‘c’est la vie’ here because it feels like a verbal shrug, accepting that this person’s thrills won’t change. Sometimes in life, it just is what it is.”
