charms – “rudy”


Brooklyn-based trio charms unveil a captivating debut single in “rudy,” a gorgeously produced success with shoegaze and dream-pop inclinations. “Are you thinking of me?” the serene vocals ask alongside clanking guitars, with the minimalist engrossment in the verses traversing grippingly into the layered escalations. There, warming guitar distortion and twinkling synth infusions combine with caressing vocal lushness. “rudy” is a fantastic debut from charms, who succeed in evoking “the complicated emotions of failed love and memories that follow us around the city.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
