Excited to announce the debut solo album from Anna Fox Rochinski – titled “Cherry” – out March 26th known as the front person of psych-folk band Quilt.

Quilt’s Anna Fox Rochinski has announced her debut solo album, “Cherry”, which will be out via Don Giovanni Records. It’s a departure from the folky psych-rock sound you may associate with her. “I lost interest in chord-based guitar music and constructed this record mostly from melodies and beats and bass lines, with guitar as an accessory rather than necessary ingredient,” Anna says, citing Madonna, Can, Midnite Vultures-era Beck, Hungarian guitarist Gabor Szabo, and Robyn’s 1995 debut as influences here.

Anna also says Cherry contains “the most personal stuff I’ve ever written,” describing it as “basically a break up album, but one that documents a time period ranging from the last few dying months of a six-year relationship and straight into the period following, when I was truly on my own for the first time in a very long time. A break up not just with a guy, but with an entire place and an entire life.” The first single is Cherry’s title track, which is definitely new territory for Anna but you can still hear the melodic style she had in Quilt,

Rochinski began writing the record at the end of her tenure in a cottage in the Hudson Valley, and continued writing during the uncomfortable transition out of a stable life she had worked hard to achieve. “This record was written while I was shedding many things that were very precious to me, but I knew I couldn’t keep”. After a few stints on the west coast she ended up in NYC, without intending to stay long, but that is where she ultimately decided to nest, as work on Cherry began.

You can watch the somewhat surreal “Cherry” video, where Anna has the run of some sort of desert resort/retreat, and check out the album.
