Charly Bliss – Guppy

Charly Bliss – Guppy

Released April 21st, 2017


Frontwoman Eva Hendricks channels her inner Kay Hanley (an admitted influence) on Charly Bliss’ full-length debut album, Guppy.  The Brooklyn-based quartet (Eva Hendricks on vocals and guitar, brother Sam Hendricks on drums, Dan Shure on bass and Spencer Fox on guitar) breathe new life into the pop side of 90s indie rock sounds. Guppy is an upbeat, gritty, enjoyable romp through early 20s confusion, love, lust, travel, and therapy. Hendricks’ lyrics shine throughout the 10 song release in their endearingly blunt and occasionally ironic qualities. The only downside (if you can call it that) is that Guppy disappointingly doesn’t capture their energy as a live band. But it is an excellent listen and gives us plenty to look forward to in the future from them.
