North London artist Charles finds inspiration in those special connections made with other people. As previously explored in singles ‘Darker Shade Of Green’ and ‘Red.Green.Gold’, relationships are the cornerstone of Charles’ songwriting, as you’ll find with his newest future-soul single ‘Sundance Kid’ featuring vocalist Sharky.
“I wrote ‘Sundance Kid’ the best part of 2 years ago with my mate Sharky. I fell down a youtube rabbit hole of old bank robbers (don’t ask) and stumbled upon Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Inspired by their story, we began to write about my relationship between me and an ex girlfriend back in the day. It was a love affair, combined with bad behaviour and a lust for causing trouble. With both knowing we would never be more than just friends for obvious reasons. Playful melodies accompanied with fat bass lines tell the story beautifully. Produced by Mathias Boman, Sundance Kid is an anthem for couples whether that be romantically or just you and ya best mate frolicking about in summer fucking shit up.”
With notes of praise already from the likes of Wonderland, Earmilk, Clash Magazine and Notion, Charles is a surefire one to watch, especially with an EP to come later this year.
