18 year-old Berkeley duo Molly with Charles have released the second single from their upcoming project ‘Q + M’. ‘Adult Themes’ has a lo-fi synth foundation, almost harp-like. The real heart of the track is the beautiful vocal writing, the melodies float majestically above the beat; the harmonies are well considered – truly stunning stuff.
Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Charles Nutrivore and I’m a producer from Berkeley, CA. I recently started collaborating with singer Molly Arizona, and together we are ‘Molly with Charles.’ Our only goal is to make timeless music.
Where did the new single come from?
The new single is one of the most emotionally raw songs we’ve written together; I wrote it while I was scrolling through a photo album of me and an ex. It began as a cover ‘Everything Means Nothing to Me’, by Elliot Smith, and somehow the instrumental warped into ‘Adult Themes’. Our goal was to combine really dark, confessional lyrics with the sheer propulsive energy of a Mike Will Made-it beat. Emo ‘Black Beatles.’
What other content is in the pipeline?
We are dropping a seven song EP called ‘q and m’ this Friday, and we’ve already started on our next project.
What’s on the horizon for you?
We’re playing a show on Friday to celebrate the release of ‘ q and m’. After that, I’ll be moving to Paris, and Molly we’ll be going back to school around that time. Our new material will be finding it’s way onto the Internet mid-2017, and we’re planning to do a little tour this summer.
