hi everyone this is my fav band in new york, like most bands in new york they recall the '90s but this is more specifically the belly/veruca salt axis if a little squeakier and more invariably bright

j/k tho i feel like there's not an insignificant amount of '90s throwback rock bands here or in philly

these guys have a particular ear for hooks though imo and prioritize the pop as much if not slightly more than the power which sets them apart

i've been waiting for a thread where i could casually drop the names of letters to cleo and eve's plum and not feel unwelcome.

also, they seem like they should be from boston, not new york.

I will admit and acknowledge that the throwbackness of Charly Bliss is what drew me to them initially, but Brad is right that they write exquisitely hooky songs that take the whole enterprise well above pastiche.

I've been trying to nail who exactly Eva's voice reminds me of. I'm still not there, but one day it will come to me.

kind of close vocally: paula kelley of the drop nineteens (speaking of boston):

this is the closest 90s thing to charly bliss imo

yes! that dog. was what immediately came to mind for me, too. charly singer is a bit squeakier than Anna Waronker, but yes.

Yeah, BradNelson is OTM that they bring the hooks. Thanks for pointing this band out

Charly Bliss are great. They've been around for awhile—"Love Me" was one of my favorite songs of 2014—I'm glad they're finally releasing an album (thankfully it's not loaded with old songs, like Bully's debut; "Ruby," "Percolator," and "Gatorade" are the only tracks already released). Does anyone else prefer the Audiotree Live version of "Percolator"? I love her yelp in the beginning.
