Forecastle Festival 2012 preview: Cherub

Cherub describes itself as a "sexy, avant-garde, electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80s funk and pop-music from the future." You can make your own assessment of this exciting new dance band when they perform at Forecastle Festival this Friday, July 13, at 5:30 p.m. on the Starboard Stage.

​Cherub, a two-man act out of Nasvhille, created waves last year with their fun, fresh debut album Man of the Hour and their irresistible sound, which incorporates both throwback grooves and smooth, modern synth beats with polished songwriting. Their infectious feelgood vibe will create the perfect opening act for this year's jam-packed Forecastle line-up.
