New York power-pop band Charly Bliss released their first longplayer in April this year. They have opened for cultbands Sleater Kinney and Veruca Salt. Their music is mostly a reminiscence of 90’s indie rock, but they have done their homework.
They have called their music bubblegrunge and consequently they’ve put up a gum ball machine at their merch table when playing gigs.
Frontwoman Eva Hendricks is 24 years old and her brother Sam is playing drums. In an interview with The Fader Eva says that her brother has been important for her taste in music: ““He introduced me to Weezer, Sum 41, and Blink 182. Sam and his best friend would play covers in our basement, and I would listen by the door, wanting to be a part of it.”
“The result is a record that captures the yearning angst and spitting anger of youth — and details feeling rootless and restless while coming of age. Guppy is one of those ecstatically empowering records you’ll return to again and again.” (NPR Music)
