Martin Kierszenbaum has undeniably altered the course of modern pop music for the better.
The man behind Cherrytree Records—which boasts a roster including LMFAO, Far East Movement, Feist, Matthew Koma, and more—continually influences the cultural zeitgeist by challenging the mainstream, while speaking directly to its desires. Whether he's seeking out and developing new talent for the label or writing and producing, Kierszenbaum continually breaks new ground as the pioneer of "alternative pop". He's even personally produced tracks for everyone from Lady Gaga to t.A.T.u. However, he steps into the spotlight on his first official single as an artist, a cover of The Magnetic Fields' "Come Back From San Francisco".
Under the moniker Cherry Cherry Boom Boom, he flips the original into a delightful, diverse, and dynamic pop gem. Shimmer synths color an organic beat vibrantly, as he flawless delivers the track's verse. Vocally, he sounds utterly pristine, gliding along with the resounding keys. Flipping the script, the bridge builds with an infectious bounce that stays stuck in your head. Plus, his arrangement lends itself to some amazing remixing possibilities.
Even though he's an ace student of what makes a great song, Kierszenbaum leaves just the right amount of room for surprises making "San Francisco" a trip well worth taking. Ultimately, this is one of the catchiest tunes of the summer and a prelude of what's to come in Cherry Cherry Boom Boom's wonderful world.
The song drops July 10 on Beatport, iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers with a full remix package available the same day including remixes by Michael Woods and Sven Kirchhof. You can hear the Sven Kirchhof remix at Hype Machine.
