Joining us in the studio for this Indie Rock Hit Parade live session is a band that returns with a pair of fresh releases. The New York band Charly Bliss first paid us a visit in the summer of 2017, a few months after the release of their debut album, Guppy. Since then, the band has at once grown and remained true to their roots; while warming up for this new performance, singer/guitarist Eva Hendricks and her brother, drummer Sam Hendricks, led the group through a medley of (mostly-) remembered early compositions and covers. With guitarist Spencer Fox and bassist Dan Shure keeping pace with the siblings as adeptly as ever, Charly Bliss released their second album, Young Enough, earlier this year and followed it up with the Supermoon EP a few weeks before this session.

In the event that it’s not made clear by the band’s lockstep performance, this session was recorded the afternoon following Charly Bliss’s last show of their tour. Eager to relax but still brimming with fizzy energy, the band tore through a trio of songs from their new releases. “Camera,” hailing from the Young Enough album, kicks off our session with the vivid image of a budding art career being cut short by a credit card company’s fraud detection department. In an interview with Consequence of Sound, Eva describes the song’s inspiration as being a true story. Next is “Threat,” a track from the Supermoon EP. The dynamic track doesn’t hide its aching lyrics but it does coat them in a sticky sweet package. Finally, there’s the blazing “Under You,” also from the full-length album. A breathless headrush through the early stages of a relationship, the song showcases the whole band’s knack for harmonies.
