Quick Thoughts: “I just want my songs to be super authentic and address shit that all young people deal with,” Charlie Houston writes. And the 19 year old has achieved that in her stunning release, Calls: an ode to today’s youth in which she sings about missed calls, empty Juul pods, and Uber Eats.
This track caught our attention immediately with its vulnerable lyrics, genre-bending sound, and perfect production. Simultaneously listenable and deeply introspective, Calls marks the arrival of a giant. With her debut EP, I HATE SPRING, due in just a couple of months, Charlie is about to take off. You’re listening to a star. Stream Calls on Spotify:
