Charly Bliss – “Nineteen”

Charly Bliss on Bandcamp.

Rating: 2 out of 4.

I mean, I guess Lady Gaga and 2018-era The 1975 are cool again. Did Charly Bliss record their keyboard in GarageBand? I’ve never been more consistently disappointed by a band I still really like. At this point, it would be more interesting if a guitar band didn’t have a saxophone.
