Her music is rich and timeless, resulting in a sound which effortlessly displays the musician’s undeniable talent and passionate delivery.
The songwriter of her most recent track, «Edge», describes it is a call for assistance that was composed a few years ago. Lena sings «I’m on the edge», emphasising how she’s reached her breaking point as she desperately attempts to find a way out of the darkness while dealing with loneliness and isolation. She admits, Reworking it years after its original composition, I was happy to see how much I had changed. This song is a tribute to my inner fortitude. To my fortitude and inner-bad b*tch, who gave me the ability to blossom in the face of adversity. I’m doing this for my inner diva. I hadn’t met her yet back then.
In terms of sound, «Edge» is a conduit for dark feminine energy and female wrath. This is some of Lena’s most sincere and genuine work to date since she let her heart determine the words and music. With its pop and drum and bass fusion, «Edge» is a tune to listen to when you want to feel pumped and energised.
Hoping her music will allow others to feel their emotions, she encourages people to not see their pain as a weakness but as something that makes them grow into the elevated version of themselves. Racking up an impressive amount of streams on Spotify, the artist continues to win over the hearts of listeners across the globe. Her cover of Nina Simone’s «Feeling Good» in collaboration with Apashe has received more than 9.5 million views on YouTube alone. Proving to be a force to be reckoned with by gathering humbling praise from tastemakers such as Wonderland Magazine, METAL Magazine, Earmilk and Atwood, expect to see a lot more from Cherry Lena.
