Take Charmless i home
Time for a new chapter in the story of Charmless i. The band recently recorded their third 5-track EP called ‘Make me Wanna’. One might notice that debut EP ‘First Coming’ had an electro feel with organic instruments added. Successor ‘Next Level’ sort of reversed that approach, expressing more of an organic band signature, with electronics added. Now both worlds meet in a glorious way. Charmless i have found an irresistible blend of everything you like about guitars as well as synths and electronic drums from the Roland TR-808, alongside their fantastically pumping organic rhythm section. On ‘Make me Wanna’ front man Alex proves to become more and more of a vocal blend of all the singers you enjoyed in ’90s British guitar bands. Make no mistake though: this band is firmly rooted in modern day productional sounds.
Currently, there are many worries in this world, both large and small. On micro as well as macro level. This entire spectrum is lyrically covered by this kaleidoscopic EP.
New single Take Me Home Tonight keeps it thematically smaller. Front man Alex has done it before and is not ashamed to do it again: acknowledging his fetish for a dominant woman. He would be more than happy to be dragged by her into her love crib and to be entirely worn out by her. Again and again. All over. Hopefully his spouse won’t find out. The simple but effective guitar lick in the verses will make you tap your feet. The sweet melodically rising guitar lick in the choruses will enchant you. All and all, this track offers a perfect match between electronics and the traditional craft of guitar playing.
Previous singles have been well received worldwide and reviews dropped in from Sweden to the USA and from Australia via Indonesia back to Germany. The band could also be seen live and played gigs in clubs, at festivals and live on radio. Speaking of radio, the band could be heard on radio stations in the UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, USA and Switzerland.
