The BarN - 10.15pm
CHERYM are three cheeky, loud mouthed girls from Derry making their own unique brand of noisy garage punk rock. Writing songs about themselves and songs about their friends, they have exploded onto the scene in Northern Ireland in 2018 with ferociously paced tunes like “Take It Back” and “Telepathic Kelly”.
In only a short space of time they’ve received airplay across BBC Radio Ulster, Radio 1, and BBC 6music, with Philly Taggart and Tom Robinson already touting themselves as fans. Classy Pop/punk - The Irish Times.
As fearless and energetic onstage as they are on record,CHERYM have put some serious miles on the road already having performed across Ireland and Scotland, supporting the likes of Canadian punk Legends D.O.A, Healthy Junkies, XSLF and fellow Northern Irish noise makers, …And So I Watch You From Afar. Despite only arriving on the scene this year, they were invited to perform at the one-off BBC Introducing Live Broadcast, kicking off the Belfast leg of The Biggest Weekend 2018.
CHERYM released their debut EP “Mouthbreatherz” in late April 2018. Shortly after the girls were nominated for two awards at the NI Music Prize. They were up for "Best single" for their song Take it Back and “Oh Yeah contender” for their contribution to Northern Irish music.
