Charlie Mayfair, The Rails, Saturday
Brisbane indie-folk quintet Charlie Mayfair have long been the darlings of their local scene, playing shows and captivating the hearts of whoever crossed their path.
Following the rousing success of their previous single Tell Her, the band is proud to announce not only the release of another single, called Waste Me, but also their second EP Fall In Time. Waste Me is a commanding slice of frantic-paced pop, once again featuring the fervent vocal of the group’s co-lead vocalist Hannah Shepherd and bolstered by the savvy production muscle of Brisbane’s Matt Redlich (Hungry Kids of Hungary, Ball Park Music, Emma Louise) – it certainly is Charlie Mayfair like you’ve never heard them before.
Since the percussive Tell Her laced national and community radio airwaves, the guitars have been turned up, the drums have become more feverish and the melodies have been sharpened to pop supremacy.
Rails on Saturday.
