Charly Bliss Announce “Young Enough,” Share “Capacity,” Brighten Day

The Japanese Breakfast–directed video precedes Brooklyn’s sugariest power pop quartet’s follow-up to Guppy.

In the same way people who hate metal seem to love Deafheaven, Charly Bliss prove themselves irresistible to audiences whose definition of rock is more whiskey-soaked than masticated bubblegum. It’s actually stupid how catchy each of their songs is, and it’s truly not fair to groups like Death Cab for Cutie, Wolf Parade, and Jawbreaker, who’ve all recently had to play sets after them.

Today, the long-awaited announcement of a sophomore album has finally hit our inboxes, and the first taste, “Capacity,” is every bit of bliss we could have possibly asked for. Soundtracking a goofy four-minute clip directed by Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle “Shelly” Zauner, the track is an elongated hexagonal bipyramid flowing with viscous fruity flavor not entirely dissimilar to the “end of one phase” loosey “Heaven,” released last September. On some real schoolboy shit, please go about the rest of your work day like you’ve just met someone very special.
