Earlier this year, Brooklyn band Charly Bliss released their fantastic sophomore album Young Enough, an album KEXP Music Director Don Yates called "a more pop-oriented take on their punkish power-pop, combining ringing guitars, shiny synths and sparkling pop melodies with Eva Hendricks’ bubbly vocals and sharply crafted lyrics of abusive relationships and resilience."
Today, they've shared a new EP titled Supermoon which collects five tracks leftover from the Young Enough sessions.
“This EP serves as a bridge, spanning the distance between [their 2017 debut LP] Guppy and Young Enough,” frontwoman Eva Hendricks told Rolling Stone. “It’s easy to hear how our sound was starting to change. The more we kept writing, the further we went. We chose songs for Young Enough that learned a little deeper into that, but it’s cool to hear how Young Enough isn’t a record that came out of thin air.”
Supermoon is out now via Barsuk Records. Stream it, and revisit their June 2019 KEXP in-studio session below.
KEXP spoke to Charly Bliss frontwoman Eva Hendricks about the process of writing about trauma, the struggle for musicians to financially survive, and how The OC and Buffy the Vampire Slayer were the perfect teen soaps.
It's the third single from their forthcoming sophomore record Young Enough
