Charly Bliss come for ya’ sweet tooth on the sugar-laden ‘Heaven’


We’re still not over a) Charly Bliss’ killer debut record Guppy, and b), their equally killer Boston Calling set in May. But here we are, being blessed all over again with a new tune from the New York band.

Charly Bliss shared “Heaven” yesterday (September 19), the first glimpse at their post-Guppy shenanigans, and man, oh man, does it appeal to your sweet tooth.

“‘Heaven’ is one of the first songs I wrote after Guppy, and to me it sounds like the ending of one phase of our sound before we knew what was going to come next,” says Charly Bliss singer Eva Hendricks. “We played it live every night of our album release tour and it was really incredible to see the way people reacted to and connected with the song. It’s our first love song, and I basically had to force myself to write the lyrics as a songwriting challenge to myself. I think I was always worried that songwriting was something that only existed to me as a coping mechanism, and that once I was happy I wouldn’t have anything interesting to say or write about. I’m proud of the sweetness and simplicity of this song, and we’re super happy to release it finally!”


Pair this track with the fact that the band is currently on the road with Death Cab For Cute — and stopping in Boston on October 14 and 15 for a pair of dates at The Wang Theatre — and you could postulate that they’re gearing up for another album. Peep “Heaven” below.
