Charly Bliss, Dead Bedrooms 

When: Thu., April 27, 9 p.m. 2017
Price: $10

Self-described as "bubble-grunge," Charly Bliss manages to simultaneously hit two extremes of the nineties alt-rock spectrum as distorted guitars race and snarl around Eva Hendricks's gleeful vocals, which turn on a dime from soft coo to ecstatic squeal. But her chipper voice betrays the heavy themes that lie below the surface of the songs. "I cry all the time/I think that it's cool/I'm in touch with my feelings," she offers at the outset of the quartet's new LP, Guppy. From there, the band uses shout-along lyrics and sunny melodies as devices to dive deep into a well of vulnerability, exploring a variety of emotional scars and relationship pitfalls while also addressing misogyny, therapy, and insecurity. Buoyed by its subversive formula, Guppy is a fun and instantly catchy debut, stringing together potential hit after hit, with each earworm challenging to oust the last. The Dead Bedrooms, a new rock quartet out of Raleigh, open. —Spencer Griffith
