It’s rare for a band to pull off a record that’s consistently great from start to finish. Even when it’s a debut, for which the group presumably had as long as was necessary to whip into shape, pulling off excellence remains an elusive feat. So kudos to Charly Bliss and its debut release “Guppy”, which manages to create effortlessly appealing pop-rock that avoids wearing out its welcome on the 10th, 50th, or even 1,000th play. By presenting deceptively simple tunes that mask the sophisticated song-craft at work in every drum fill and bridge, the band’s exuberant energy and willingness to keep an edge of noise and abandon keeps even the most overt harmonies and hooks from becoming mired in saccharine sap. It’s a fantastic feel good record.
