video: "Black Hole" - Charly Bliss

Charly Bliss views a serious subject through the art of a youthful and Matilda-inspired lens on new video "Black Hole." Speaking with Nylon Magazine, Eva Hendricks detailed how the track is about "when you’re caught up in an emotionally abusive relationship, it’s easy to convince yourself that everything you’re putting yourself through is building toward some sort of payoff, when everything will suddenly feel easy and light. That didn’t happen, and the lyrics are about me coming to terms with that, while also still not being totally able to give it up yet.” The track begins easily enough, light patterings of drums and strings moving smoothly along with Hendricks defiant vocals. As the seconds pass though, the intensity picks up, diving off into a quiet moment before a thunderous finish. It's a reflection of the roller coaster ride that can come with our darkest moments in life, even adding a shriek of frustration and rage. Their album is out 4/21.
