Pearl of wisdom
Thoughtful and zippy alternative pop from a word-crazy singer songwriter. Livelier than her previous work, but just as innovative.
About Pearl Charles
Singer/songwriter Pearl Charles has a knack for writing melodic, low-key indie pop with a jangling country tone. A lifelong musician, the Los Angeles native first gained exposure as one-half of lo-fi Americana duo the Driftwood Singers, who released a pair of EPs and one full-length in 2012. A stint playing drums for garage pop act the Blank Tapes, introduced her to the crew at Burger Records, who offered to release her first solo effort, a 2015 self-titled EP. The raw '60s-inspired garage and light psych-pop of that first release soon gave way to the more polished pop and country-rock of 2018's Sleepless Dreamer, Charles' full-length debut and first for Brooklyn indie Kanine Records. ~ Timothy Monger
