song: "Charlotte" - Den-Mate
The latest single from Den-Mate proves an equally intoxicating counterpart to previous single "Sick." "Charlotte" is the latest track to come from the singer's upcoming Babe City release Loceke and it's an inquisitive musical moment tinged in hints of darkness and uncertainty. Based around the narrative of a fictional character named Charlotte, Den-Mate dives headfirst into nearly four minutes of pure, thick bliss. The track begins with a pulsing beat, Den-Mate's Jules Hale letting her vocals serve as a husky, nearly otherworldly presence. It's a track of continued questioning, Hale wondering about the makeup of this fictional character and every decision they seem to make. As time continues the instrumentals begin to swirl, as if creating a thick haze for you to fall into it. And just as you adjust to the surroundings, Hale shifts back to its pulsing, swirling beginnings. It's an exact encapsulation of the unknown; the whispered vocals, experimental guitar, and rising tide of guitar creating a song that seems both calculated but free.
