Kerry Charles has today premiered his new video for the single titled ‘I Live Alone’. Drenched in subtle soul I quietly tap my toes and snap my fingers to a song that oozes suave and fills my heart with a delectable urge to nod my head in an assertive groove.
I don’t know what it is about songs like this. The said groove. The hook. That confidence that comes with a song that just is and doesn’t try to be, because, it doesn’t have to. Modern Motown in feel and new age soul in construction, ‘I Live Alone’ is for all of us, regardless of our living situation. It brings us together.
About Kerry Charles
Blurring the lines between caricature and confessional, Kerry Charles isn’t quite certain where his act ends and reality begins. Sardonic, yet sincere, abject but personal and indisputably groovy, Charles’s timeless pop recordings are as enigmatic as their author.
Drawing influence from the likes of Prince, Hall and Oates and Steely Dan, Charles’s obsessively produced tracks land somewhere between laid-back synth pop, smooth dad rock and seductive R&B.
The New Jersey-based songwriter and producer pairs his intimate falsetto with a lush palette of synthesizers and the inimitable sax stylings of Max Cudworth to produce a sound that longs for a time of polyester and purple rain.
Supported by an outstanding lineup of musicians (including Dustin Kaufman of St. Lucia), Charles and Cudworth spin a sensual yarn that will have you reaching to dim the lights and uncork that second bottle of malbec.
His debut LP, I Think Of You, is packed with moments heralded by Noisey as “seriously groovy cold-weather jams…the type of music that feels just right when the leaves start to change colors.” Nine tracks of cozy sonic gems that will have you begging for more, and rest assured more is around the corner.
