Charlie is a 3-piece band from Tampa, Florida, and “Precious Metal” is their debut album! I discovered it during my weekly music reviews and I ended up adding all the songs to the library. Their sound is reminiscent of 90’s alt-rock and shoegaze, and this compilation of 10 songs sounded perfect together. This album is only 29 minutes long so it is definitely worth giving the whole piece a listen.

Of the work, “Pressure” and “Giving In” were in my top 2 favorites. These songs are guitar driven and have an indie-rock vibe. The lyrics are catchy and the distorted guitar makes these the perfect songs to listen to inside on a rainy day. If you are looking for something more upbeat, I recommend “Live and Maintain” and “Strung Along” has the perfect mellow sound. Make sure to check Charlie out and listen to this album!
