Brooklyn-based, self-described “bubblegrunge” rockers Charly Bliss released a delicious, hook-filled debut this year. If you haven’t gotten to know Guppy, now’s the time to: Charly Bliss could well be your new favorite band, but at the rate they’re growing, you can hardly call them “new” anymore.
“We spent a really long time writing [Guppy], so some of the songs are super old and some are newer, but we’re so excited to be writing new music,” declares frontwoman Eva Hendricks on this week’s #AlternativeFacts podcast. “We recorded the record a little over a year ago, so we feel so excited about writing more. We’re hoping to record our second record as soon as possible, so we’re in full writing mode.”
Eva joined bandmates Spencer Fox (guitar), Dan Shure (bass) and Sam Hendricks (drums) to discuss the new songs (which they’re already playing live), how they were actually “a Starbucks band for a minute,” and why they kind of intimidate other bands when they first meet them. Unrelated, there's also some impromptu singing of Hinder and Breaking Benjamin songs.
