Stream Charly Bliss’ New Supermoon EP

Back in May, Charly Bliss released their sophomore outing Young Enough. It was an even brighter, poppier update on the sugary rush of their debut Guppy, and we were pretty big fans of it here at Stereogum — after we named it Album Of The Week, it also ranked very high on our mid-year albums roundup. It was the kind of achievement you always hope a band is able to pull off on their second effort, and it was reasonable to expect it might be a minute before we’d hear some new Charly Bliss music (especially because they have been touring a lot since it came out).

Well, turns out we get a whole new EP of Charly Bliss material before the year’s out. The band’s 2019 bonus lap is called Supermoon, and it features five tracks culled from the same sessions that birthed Young Enough, including “Heaven,” which the band released last year. At Rolling Stone, frontwoman Eva Hendricks calls it “a bridge, spanning the distance between Guppy and Young Enough.” She continues, “It’s easy to hear how our sound was starting to change. The more we kept writing, the further we went. We chose songs for Young Enough that learned a little deeper into that, but it’s cool to hear how Young Enough isn’t a record that came out of thin air.”
