Today, NY's Charly Bliss have shared a video for "Chatroom" the second single from their highly anticipated new album, Young Enough. Jezebel, who debuted the Maegan Houang-directed video today and spoke with the band's Eva Hendricks, are calling it "rage therapy through pop music" 

Of the song Hendricks says "I was sexually assaulted by someone I dated and I wrote 'Chatroom,' and most of Young Enough, as a way of processing that experience and explaining it to myself. 'Chatroom' is a song about reaching ecstatic joy through consuming rage. Simply put, it's a colossal 'fuck you' and a celebration of reaching the point of a "'fuck you' that isn't diluted by self-blame or apologies.
 
I feel so lucky to have worked with Maegan Houang on this video. I felt an immediate sense of mutual trust, and she produced a treatment that directly addresses the themes of trauma, misogyny and mind control without resorting to a literal representation of the lyrics. It's tonally the darkest video we've ever made, and I think it anchors the intent of song which might otherwise be obscured by the fact that it's also our most direct foray into larger-than-life pop music."

Young Enough is available for pre-order now and due out May 10th via Barsuk Records.

Additionally, Charly Bliss has announced an extensive North American headlining tour this summer and European tour in May. All dates below.
