The Nordic rockers CHARLOTTE AND THIEVES released their new single “Younger Boy” on Friday June 15th. It’s the first to be taken from their debut EP.
“Charlotte” in fact, refers to Michael Charlotte, the charismatic vocalist of the band. The band is also composed of: Viktor Lindblom on guitar and vocals, Andreas Rukan on bass and Oskar Rydh on drums.
Michael was a promising cross-country skier before an illness permanently kept him away from the sport.
“Younger Boy” is a revelation of self. The track evolved from the idea that at some point in life we must distance ourselves from the things we were told as a child and make our own opinions. Self-criticism and evaluation are a vital part of finding a place in society. The recurring phrase: “put the gun down before learning” is a metaphor about defending oneself to maintain honour. Humility is very easily underestimated.
The 60s & 70s pop-rock influenced band has just finished mixing and mastering their debut EP titled “It Won’t Be Long We Won’t Belong.”
The tombstone-heavy bass-stomp of “Younger Boy” is a glam metal confection with a theatricality of sound that places it somewhere between Cheap Trick and Def Leppard. The huge claws of guitar will help entice the listener into this exciting and vocally energizing number.
