This is the 900th post on Wicked Guilty Pleasures. It wasn't supposed to be our 900th post.
In fact, this was not a band I had heard OF before I posted #899 yesterday.
I first heard Charly Bliss on February 18th, 2021. They've been around for several years, but for some reason, I only stumbled upon them today. They are now in heavy rotation. This fun, perky, punky song that contains the line "I bounced so high I peed the trampoline" is perhaps my early favorite.
The band has been compared to Weezer, and I hear it. But they're somehow even quirkier than Weezer, and that's a good thing.
You know that I am going to add a live version of this song, right? From the 2017 Audiotree Music Festival in Kalamazoo, MI, you can see that the whole band is full of cohesive energy, with Eva Hendricks a solid frontwoman, and not just a vocalist.
Also, everything I hear about this band is that they are all very nice.
For all these reasons, I rewrote post #900. And I will revisit this band. They are incredible.
