Mixing the melodic rush, fiery attitude and relentless energy of pop-punk with the kind of voice and instantly irresistible hooks that powers chart-bound pop stars, Charlotte Sands bridges the space between those two worlds. She’s just as comfortable opening for My Chemical Romance and YUNGBLUD as she is writing an appreciation of Harry Styles’ fashion choices with ‘Dress’, her biggest moment to date which has exceeded 35 million streams and spent ten weeks in the Top 40 on pop radio in the States. She’s firmly on a trajectory which mirrors Katy Perry’s breakthrough, when she was racing up the charts while performing on the Warped Tour.
2023 will see Charlotte’s profile accelerate, starting with today’s release of her new single ‘Alright’. The song is unveiled as Charlotte is currently embarking upon a major UK and European tour as guest to PVRIS. Listen HERE.
‘Alright’ represents a subtle evolution in Charlotte’s style. The raw emotions and soaring voice that fans first connected to so powerfully are still at the forefront, but this time they’re placed within the context of a dynamite ballad in which electro-pop touchpoints and dramatic intensity presents Charlotte’s artistic identity in a way that can reach her widest audience to date. She wrote the song with its producer, fellow Nashville resident Dane
Charlotte says, “‘Alright’ is about having hope when it feels nearly impossible and forcing yourself to see the light at the end of the tunnel, holding onto even the slightest chance that it will get better. We wrote this song with the hope that it could remind even one person that life does go on and nothing is forever. The future can be so daunting especially in times of uncertainty, and it can so often feel like you’re stuck without a way out, but this song is a sign to keep moving forward because it will get better.”
Instantly recognisable by her electric blue hair, Charlotte’s current tour dates with PVRIS are listed below. She will return to the UK in May to play both legs of the Slam Dunk Festival and is also confirmed for Rock am Ring and Rock im Park in Germany. More big plans for 2023 are also in the works – expect more news to be unveiled soon.
