Outrageous Cherry

Named after a brilliant red hair dye, Detroit legends Outrageous Cherry explores the sunnier side of droning, fuzzy indie rock. Formed in 1993 as another brainstorm project by multi-talented genius Matt Smith, Outrageous Cherry have been making records for more than 20 years now, ranging from experimental psychedelic excursions such as 2001’s The Book of Spectral Projections to pure AM-radio inspired and reverb-laced pop. Outrageous Cherry pretty much remains a best-kept secret in the indie rock mainstream, though fellow artists, such as Wilco and New Pornographers, love them, the latter even releasing an Outrageous Cherry covers EP!
