Track of the Day: Answering Machine “Cherry Coke” (2020)

Brooklyn rock and rollers Answering Machine have just dropped latest single, “Cherry Coke“. The track marks our most recent glimpse of upcoming album Bad Luck, due out April 17th.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of The Ramones, Blondie, The Ronettes, and Against Me, Answering Machine formed back in 2016. Launched by public school teachers Samantha (vocals) and JD (guitar/vocals), close friends Jackson (guitar), Louis (drums) and Craig (bass) round out the quintet. Since then, they’ve become regulars on the New York scene, winning over fans with their power pop/punk sound.

Of the latest track, JD says:

“Cherry Coke” is a love song about fever dreams, bloody noses, and candy canes. It’s for all the old folks who want to settle down but still have some fun. This one’s inspired by a love of Buddy Holly, 60s pop music, and The Ramones.”

Answering Machine’s Bad Luck will be released through Wiretap Records on April 17th.
