I love discovering new talent. As a blogger, I receive a lot of emails of new artist and music; some have a lot of potential but very few are ready for the spotlight. London based mystery act, BAYOU seems to be there already. The hazy and gloomy nostalgic track “Cherry Cola” combines elements of R&B and dreamy electronica with vocals that fall somewhere in between The Weeknd and Hot Chip. The artistry on this debut track is so brilliantly executed that it feels familiar yet surprisingly fresh. I love, love, love everything about this song.
Now, I’m a huge fanatic of film director Wong Kar-Wai, I’ve seen every single one of his movies. The video for “Cherry Cola” appears to take cues from one of his love-is-imposible kinda films. This makes “Cherry Cola” a much more special song.

What do you guys thinks of the song?! Let me know your thoughts?!!
