Brooklyn’s Charly Bliss have revealed a new song titled “Heaven,” their first single since the critically acclaimed Guppy. The song is a regular during their live performances and the most straightforward love song the band has released thus far.
"'Heaven' is one of the first songs I wrote after Guppy,” explains lead vocalist Eva Hendricks. “And to me, it sounds like the ending of one phase of our sound before we knew what was going to come next. We played it live every night of our album release tour and it was really incredible to see the way people reacted to and connected with the song. It's our first love song, and I basically had to force myself to write the lyrics as a songwriting challenge to myself. I think I was always worried that songwriting was something that only existed to me as a coping mechanism and that once I was happy I wouldn't have anything interesting to say or write about. I'm proud of the sweetness and simplicity of this song, and we're super happy to release it finally!"
Charly Bliss starts a tour with Death Cab for Cutie on Sept. 24. Listen to “Heaven” and watch Charly Bliss’ KEXP in-studio performance from last year below.
