Cherryade’s Ella Channels her Inner Empress in New Video

Alt-pop duo Cherryade have released a new self-made video for their recent single ‘Empress‘. The single itself is a fiesty and fun track much like earlier releases ‘Get By‘ and ‘Blah Blah‘. The London pair has a new EP on the way.

Speaking of the video, Alex said: “We produced, filmed, directed and edited the video entirely ourselves, and we’re extremely proud of that as it really encompasses what the song is all about to us – being powerful, confident and independent”.

Ella said: “We were really inspired by ancient Chinese empresses like Dowager Cixi for the video, and growing up in a multicultural Chinese Caribbean family, I was surrounded by strong women like my mum and granny, who traveled to various countries and overcame so much. We really wanted to address how women in power throughout history are often negated by men, and their successes often brushed over in favour of shocking scandals and rumours to damage their legacies”.
