Every delicate glance, every minimal conversation and even the way people think are analyzed within the length of this LP. Charly Bliss embodies the 90s more than jean jackets and plaid skirts, and by the sound of this record, they listened to more than a little bit of Bikini Kill and Veruca Salt while they were writing.
Guppy echoes with truth—and awesome guitar parts. The songwriting is smart and fresh, and the music is quick and addictive like poppy music should be.
Overall, Guppy is ready to square up against the boring boy band pop-punk albums that this scene has rightfully outgrown. The more I listen to it, the more it grows on me.
The energy and confidence that oozes out of this album is contagious. Being heavy rock devotees, Thom Weeks and company have always existed in the margins of socially conservative rural England; but the rise of Right populism has alienated them more zealously, as true outsiders.
The personal songwriting certainty required vulnerability but it allows for listeners to explore their own emotions within a space that varies from optimistic to reflective on past pains. Instrumentally the record is experimental but strategically uses acoustic moments, provoking guitar work, and more to make the lyrics even more heartfelt.
What really sets this release apart for me is how focused and reflective it is. It basks in loneliness and boredom, belabored at the thought of his personal relationships. So where do we go when we need some deliverance?
