Introducing: Charrles

charrles_press_2Hailing from The Netherlands, singer Charrles (real name Charlot Henzen) has a lot of experience under her belt at the tender age of 22. Now gone solo, after leaving her band of seven years, “I Kissed Charles”, the singer has thrown herself into her music in a big way, and cites her influences as The Naked and Famous, Charli XCX, Icona Pop and Ellie Goulding.

The influence of 80s electro pop is immediately evident upon first listening to her music, with her song “Sounds of the City” reminding us of 80s girl groups like Bananarama, The GoGos and the Bangles.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
