Seattle-based artist on the rise Dempsey Hope releases his new track “strawberry cheesecake” via RCA Records. Listen HERE. “strawberry cheesecake” follows Dempsey’s latest tracks “birds”, “picture perfect”, “on my mind” and “autumn” which was featured in Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week” column.
Dempsey says, “this record overall is a fun summer love song but “strawberry cheesecake” in this is a symbol for that special thing you can do for your significant other, maybe they’re in a bad mood or you messed up some plans you guys had and you need to make up for it so you stop and get their favorite treat. kinda like “brownie points” if you know what that means? my girlfriend doesn’t actually love strawberry cheesecake it was more of a metaphor, my girls equivalent to strawberry cheesecake is probably coffee or just my love and affection.”
Last fall, Dempsey released the dempsey hope project. The project was a collection of 10 songs that Dempsey had spent months working on and featured “baby blue” ft. Olivia O’Brien (watch the lyric video HERE) as well as fan favorites such as “roller rink” which was featured in Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week,” “time flies” and “elephant in the room” feat. gnash.
