New York City’s Charly Bliss have made a triumphant return, signing to Lucky Number (worldwide excluding America) and announcing their much anticipated new album Young Enough, set to drop on May 10th and is available for pre-order here.
The albums lead single ‘Capacity’ has also surfaced with an accompanying music video. Video director Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast, says: “Charly Bliss has always made great narrative music videos, so I wanted to stay in line with that tradition and take advantage of working with a band that are all such great, funny actors individually. I was watching a lot of heist movies at the time, and I thought a sort of post-heist fall out between friends was the perfect setting for this song about reaching your limit with someone. Eva had an amazing mood board she brought to the table with references to Paris, Texas, Five Easy Pieces and Badlands so it was important for us to showcase a warm, 70’s colour palette.”
Charly Bliss’ Eva Hendricks says “‘Capacity’ is a song about wanting to kill your inner people-pleaser, and Michelle beautifully presented a parallel concept, which warns of the perils of getting swept up in other people’s bullshit.”
