Pearl Charles shares her 10 favorite albums of 2018
NME calls Pearl Charles “a stoner Lana Del Rey or a Jenny Lewis with a grit”. Her music is a mix of Southern Folk, Alt-Country, Americana and Westcoast Rock.
Pearl Charles lives in the moment, seeking excitement whether it leads her down a dark, dusty road or into the arms of a trouble-making lover. Her full-length debut album, “Sleepless Dreamer”, describes late night revelry, love affairs, running away and running towards, serenading the sunrise through whirlwind stories of her native Los Angeles, the city, the canyon, the desert, and the road.
On a quest to discover the truest version of herself, Charles embraces the feeling of not being settled, a person who always restlessly wants more from life and is willing chase it, wherever it may lead her. “Sleepless Dreamer” finds her soulful, often sultry voice gliding through songs tinged with cosmic Americana, a little disco, some classic rock & roll, and a whole lot of that smooth AM gold. Passion, psychedelics and heartbreak inform the highs and lows she rides through the album.
