New York natives, Charly Bliss, are riding high of their latest single, “Ruby,” and have embarked on a nationwide tour with some dates alongside the equally energetic Rozwell Kid and PUP. They made their debut splash in L.A. with an all-out ass-kicking show at the Echo with on-stage antics and 90’s fuzz-fueled music that included fist-pumping into the air with the crowd chanting, “F**k yeah!”
Lead vocalist Eva Hendricks is a short, pixie-like girl with a ton of attitude and has a lot to say with their latest single “Ruby.” This song came out of a dark period in Hendrick’s life when she had a fear of fainting and sought help from a therapist to overcome this dilemma. The single also has a campy music video where the band plays a third-rate public access TV show and has the image quality is that of an early 90’s.
The band came onto the stage ready for a night of everlasting rock as they showed off some new tracks on their upcoming release. They started off with “Percolator,” a deep-seeded rock song that captures the aura of Charly Bliss perfectly. Hendrick’s vocals screeched over the wailing guitars of Spencer Fox as bassist Dan Shure and drummer Sam Hendricks (Eva’s older brother) kept the sound tight and held their own on stage. Fox and Shure felt the groove on stage and would nearly touch instruments but really, they were trying to assure themselves of the force they had on stage being real. All three guitarists would raise their instruments as they rocked to an incredible set that included, “Golden Age,” “Urge to Purge” and “Love Me.”
Eva’s bubbly vocals rang out during “Urge to Purge” as she bounced around the stage giving the audience her best rock star pose. They finished strong and flawless as Hendricks spent the last song jumping around the stage as if on an imaginary jump rope. The energy level did not end until they unplugged their instruments and made their exit. Charly Bliss is currently on tour and will hit a few key cities on this tour. Los Angeles cannot wait for their return to shower the fans with the fun and power-pop antics they are known for.
