Everyone's favourite North London artist, Charles, has returned with an absolute masterpiece of an E.P that oozes soul in the best way possible.
One thing about Charles is that he can twist and turn melodies and lyricism about his childhood and relationships with his parents into something relatable for his audience and it's something to admire about the artist.
Having spent his younger years dialling into Pink Floyd and others, it's an obvious reason why this new project creates the rebellious feeling whilst giving it the soft touch of soul.
Throughout the five-track body of work, Charles combines the pressures of social interactions and life as a twenty-something with juicy beats and beautiful vocals that really show off his unique talent. Which is the lead single 'Easy' is a blissful introduction to Charles' work, with the addictive beats, soft soulful vocals and juicy guitars/keyboards taking over any listeners mind. The harmonies of 'You've got to take it easy' are still in this writers mind.
This E.P is proof that Charles is an artist to keep an eye on.
Speaking on the E.P, Charles says:
‘On Trend, Hungry & Broke’ is a beautiful insight into my life in my twenties. Attempting to maintain strong relationships with parents and becoming closer when you come to understand that they are too just normal people, trying to get through this thing we call life. Realising that the champagne lifestyle with my lemonade budget is probably not the best way to conduct my adult life. Getting caught up in the party and never really knowing when to go home, but hey who needs sleep before a 12-hour shift? Social pressures of always pulling a look and being the best version of yourself at all times, in case someone really saw you for who you are. Welcome to life in my twenties, being on-trend, hungry & broke. To better days!”
