Introducing: Hey Charlie

Hey CharlieWith more grunge and less pop, Hey Charlie is a trio consisting of Luxembourger Lizz on vocals and guitar, Shropshire's Sophie on vocals and bass and Belfast's Lauren on drums and backing vocals. The internationally-borne act bears the slick, confident sound of a group of musicians who've found their rightful place in the music-sphere and are feeling pretty darn smug about it. In the nicest possible way.

Another artist we've plucked from the line-up of Liverpool Sound City 2018, Hey Charlie originally formed when Sophie and Lizz met while studying Business Management together in London. Presumably needing the jamming time to take the edge off lectures on operational finance and corporate governance, they focused their energy on creating a raw but nevertheless coherently constructed sound.

Hey Charlie thread complementary vocals to catchy lines, on a bed of slightly distorted guitars and uncomplicated drum lines. The simplicity in their music rings of the anti-Britpop movement in the 90s, and their music would especially appeal to fans of pop-punk (Wheatus, Bowling for Soup) and grunge (unsurprisingly, Nirvana are one of their main shared influences).

The band already have a string of achievements to be proud of : they released their debut EP Young & Lonesome - recorded with Tarek Musa from Spring King - late last year, around the same time they supporting All Time Low on tour, only to play a set at this year's Great Escape festival and gain plaudits from Kerrang and Fresh Blood's Alex Baker in the aftermath.
