Chey Rose Captures Playful Emotion of Crushing Hard in Fun New Single, V.C.R.
Taking a drastic 180 from her last release, sultry, dark-pop Good Habit, Chey Rose dives into light-hearted romance with her brand new single, V.C.R., a synth driven pop tune that relishes the passionate spark of fresh infatuation and the delicious emotions that come along with a new crush. This Summer anthem for young, zealous love is conveyed through Chey’s warm tone and buttery- smooth vocal runs. Bouncy synths, rhythmic beats & crisp melodies mesh together to create a carefree, happy-go-lucky tune comparable to Khalid’s Talk and Taylor Swift’s You Need to Calm Down. The song was released on iTunes, Spotify, and all digital retailers.
V.C.R., co-written with Nashville talents Shir Czopp and Will McBeath, portrays the chemistry of newfound love through unique, unconventional lyrics in order to parallel the way love often feels unconventional, indescribable and nonsensical. For instance, the phrase “Velvet Cosmic Rush,” doesn’t make complete grammatical sense, however, invokes a distinct and flavorful feeling that will keep listeners playing it on repeat all Summer long.
“I really think the happy, whimsical tone in V.C.R. is a direct result of how we felt in the room while writing it! This session was the most fun I’ve had in a long time – we were constantly laughing and the song came out so easily,” says Chey. “I love that we were able to capture a specific emotion without spoon-feeding the theme to listeners. What even is a ‘heaven cupid crush,’ or a ‘velvet cosmic rush?’ I don’t exactly know, but I can feel what it is. And love works that same exact way.”
