LISTEN TO "TURD"
This week New York's Charly Bliss are kicking off an east coast tour with Tokyo Police Club. Their energetic live show is not to be missed.
Last year the band released "Turd," a Bandcamp exclusive song with all proceeds going to Planned Parenthood that Rolling Stone called "a great punk-rock banger about getting catcalled." They also released a video for "Ruby," a digital single which Pitchfork said was reminiscent of "the feel-good hooks that defined mid-90s power-pop bands like Letters to Cleo and the Rentals."

ABOUT CHARLY BLISS:
Brooklyn bubble-grunge four-piece Charly Bliss combine irrepressible pop sensibility with raw, punchy guitars. Eva Hendricks, the band's charismatic singer jumps and kicks her way around the stage "as though she were the result of a laboratory fusion of Eddie Vedder and a punk-rock cheerleader" (The A.V. Club). The band's songs have infectious, powerful melodies, displaying a supernatural knack for pop hooks.
Eva and guitarist/vocalist Spencer Fox met at NYC's Webster Hall when they were 15, and soon began writing songs together over AOL Instant Messenger. They were later joined by drummer Sam Hendricks (Eva's older brother) and bassist Dan Shure, and went on to release a three-song EP called Soft Serve along with an accompanying video and comic book trilogy
The band turns heads everywhere they go and have spent the past year refining their live show on the road opening for Veruca Salt, Sleater-Kinney, Tokyo Police Club, Glass Animals, and Darwin Deez. Watching the band's infectious, fun-packed show is "like ripping off the wrapping of a present on Christmas Day" (Pancakes and Whiskey). Simply put: Charly Bliss is "one of those bands where you either like them or you're wrong" (Upset Magazine).
