Young Enough

Posted by on Jul 2, 2019

You would not immediately assume the mega-pop melodies on Charly Bliss‘ latest release Young Enough are something from the nether regions of an annihilated love-torn soul, but that’s where you’re wrong.

Even front woman Eva Hendricks admits she cannot help but frame the darkest of reflections within something bright and upbeat. But who said the darkest of thoughts must always be paired with the darkest of sounds? Dress that drama and heartache up with sparkling synths and ultra ’80s-into-’90s new wave/alt. tones, and it’s just as gut-wrenching as Hendricks guides you through the heavier undertones. With the sweetness comes the sour, and you’ll feel it coursing through your emotions.

Charly Bliss takes over the room tomorrow night at Stubb’s indoor venue, 801 Red River. Brooklyn artist and audio engineer Emily Reo opens the show. Doors at 8 p.m. Recommended.
