Bio

Resurfacing at the start of the year with lead single ‘Grieving’, Charlie Gradon is back with new indie-rock banger ‘Blurry Ones’, keeping everyone on their toes by taking a big step up in energy compared to the mellow folk laden tones of ‘Grieving’.

‘Blurry Ones’ was written about a time when Gradon bought his wife Ally a vintage camera which took as Gradon describes – “Basically useless blurry photographs.” Seeing it as a metaphor for his life/love and at times useless behaviour, Charlie tells the story of himself grappling with mental illness while coming to terms with the fact that he has found the love of his life. The last lyrics of the song depicts Gradon’s feelings - “I’m getting happier, and it’s all thanks to her.”

"Dispersing an emotional vivacity inescapable to the human soul, the quintessential aftermath to any Charlie Gradon experience.' - AU Review

“Self-Doubt” is 22 minutes of deep introspection and infectious melodies crafted with a deft degree of precision." - Life Without Andy

I kind of like the blurry parts too. They're beautiful, feel entirely under the influence of those majestic hazy psychedelic sonic swirls.

This is just so gorgeous. That searing guitar wail out at the end? Oh boy.
