Derry, County Derry
Serving up their own unique recipe of pop-rock, Cherym are a three-piece from Derry. The trio’s identity was born of a joint love of Garage Rock, Pop Punk and a desire to be the biggest band in the world. Their self-released debut EP 'Mouthbreatherz' racked up over 20,000 organic streams and garnered them fans all over Ireland, earning them slots at a number of prominent festivals and support roles for notable bands such as local legends ‘And So I Watch You From Afar’ and ‘Fangclub.’ Cherym were nominated for ’Best Single’ with their debut track 'Take It Back' at the 2018 NI Music Awards.
The band released their latest single ‘Abigail’ in November 2019, which has been their most successful release yet, with support from both DSP editorial play-listing and National radio. The song has received support from BBC Introducing, where it debuted on Huw Stephens’ show. In February 2020, the band embarked on a series of dates with ‘Yonaka’, including a sold-out show in The Grand Social in Dublin.
Their latest single, 'Weird Ones' was released on May 1st. With further support from Spotify tastemakers (four editorial playlists) and continued support from Huw Stephens, Gemma Bradley, Stephen McCauley, Dan Hegarty and Paul McCloone, 'Weird Ones' adds to the already strong discography from Cherym.
