Cherry on Top by Ainsley Costello: Review
With ‘Cherry On Top,’ Ainsley Costello adds a rock edge to her style of pop. The song is a symphony in contrasts, with a dynamic chorus full of riffs and acoustic sections that keep things interesting while displaying Ainsley’s endearing voice. However, the plot in the lyrics, which serves up loads of icy revenge, is what I appreciated the most. Ainsley is one to watch, with a songwriting skill that contradicts her age. Elements of punk merge with the subtlety of a gentle ukulele amid walls of heavy-hitting guitar and percussion to create a fantastic sound. From live instrumentation to electronic production, this song promises to strike a chord with many listeners.
Despite drawing inspiration from current songs, Ainsley manages to inject her personality and unique features into the song. She calls it “very punk” with her trademark sassiness, but it truly goes above and beyond everything else she’s released this year. It’s wonderful how she walks the line between harsher instrumentation in the chorus and a lovely ukulele in the bridge. As you are surely aware, pop punk is seeing a renaissance, but this band seeks to shake things up and fearlessly look beyond the box.
There is no question that the budding star’s go-getter attitude will lead to a great future since she is an artist who delivers with great dedication.
