Cherry Blaster, Iulia Ciobanu’s solo/electronic synth project, has released a captivating track with the latest single “Olive.” A complex soundscape with earnest vocals, the song instantly pulls the listener in with its edgy synthpop melody.
“‘Olive’ takes a look at the downside of dreaming too hard,” says Ciobanu, “It’s a classic story: countless films and books have depicted successful yet disillusioned characters that fall into darkness in response to the anticlimactic reality of achieving their dreams. A result perhaps of too much focus placed on an idealized end goal and comparisons with others’ successes. This song doesn’t venture into quite as melodramatic territory, but it does paint a picture of quiet, deflated acceptance.”
I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
