While you might have caught Charles‘ previous singles like ‘Red.Green.Gold’ and ‘Darker Shade of Green’, it’s in fact our first time listening to the British talent via his brand new tune ‘Sundance Kid’.
Charles invites the saccharine toned voice of Sharky to join him on this bouncing future-soul jam, which was inspired by a YouTube rabbit hold which led the songwriter to the story of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. What Charles found was that the dynamic of that criminal partnership drew parallel to a past relationship of his.
As the North London artist recalls:
“I wrote ‘Sundance Kid’ the best part of 2 years ago with my mate Sharky. I fell down a youtube rabbit hole of old bank robbers (don’t ask) and stumbled upon Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Inspired by their story, we began to write about my relationship between me and an ex girlfriend back in the day. It was a love affair, combined with bad behaviour and a lust for causing trouble. With both knowing we would never be more than just friends for obvious reasons. Playful melodies accompanied with fat bass lines tell the story beautifully. Produced by Mathias Boman, Sundance Kid is an anthem for couples whether that be romantically or just you and ya best mate frolicking about in summer fucking shit up.”
It’s important to note that ‘Sundance Kid’ is just the start; Charles will be releasing his debut EP later this year.
