NYC-based rock quartet, Charly Bliss, dropped their latest debut record Guppy and it’s a 10-track rendezvous between pop and rock. Lacerating the pop texture with the aggressive strings of rock’n’roll, Charly Bliss finds a rapturous balance between the comfy hookiness of pop and explosive atmosphere. Guppy is not the pop record you’re used to – it’s polished/slashed with guitar chords that stand as representation of Charly Bliss’ own flair of songsculpting:

Charly Bliss became widely known for their 2014 EP, Soft Serve, which lead them to play alongside other bands like Glass Animals, Darwin Deez, and Tokyo Police Club.
