CHERYM are Hannah Richardson, Nyree Porter and Alannagh Doherty.
Serving up a zingy, fearless new recipe for pop punk rock, Cherym are a three-piece from Derry in Northern Ireland with some seriously infectious songwriting credentials. Taking influence from The Smashing Pumpkins, Bikini Kill, American Football, PUP and Pixies, the trio formed after meeting in college over a joint love of garage rock, pop punk and a desire to be the biggest band in the world.
Starting out as a kick-back against the local music scene boys club, their relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy are the perfect antidote to the drudgery of life under lockdown—a very, very bright shining light for 2021 at the end of what’s been a long tunnel.
CHERYM signed with Alcopop! Records in January 2021 and ITB Booking Agents in April 2021. They have received support from BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley, Phil Taggart), KEXP, BBC Radio 6 (Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson), X Radio (Jack Kennedy) and glowing high profile online reviews from DORK, Alt Press, Upset, Vanyaland, Dead Press, The Irish Times, Punktuation, Louder Than War and more.
CHERYM have performed at The Great Escape, ILMC, Electric Picnic, Indiependence, Stendhal, Manchester Punk Festival and more
