CHARLY BLISS – SINGLE REVIEW

Charly Bliss – Westermarck 
Charly Bliss - Westermarck

Release Date: Out Now

I love this song. Straight up, infatuation on the train, love at first sight, love this song. Partly, it’s because New Yorkers Charly Bliss remind me of that period in the 90s when bands with female singers or all female bands were prominent and writing great tunes. ‘Westermarck’ is, by the band’s own admissions, bubblegum grunge but it’s also a slice of riot-girl garage with a razor blade smile and it’s damn infectious. From frontwoman Eva’s squeaky voice which is pure Tanya Donnelly to the perky drums and scuzzy guitars this is pure gorgeousness that reminds me why I loved Belly, Veruca  Salt and Lush so much back in the day. Consider the kick ass chorus and grunge-tastic pop-fuelled video and you’ve got yourself a song to fall in love to and with. Oh, and they’re heading to the UK for their first ever British dates too so that’s a bonus!
