Press & Venues
A young, though mature Indiepop band from The Netherlands with a refreshing focus on getting crowds to move. The music is both physically and mentally motivating due to its signature grooves that carry the hopeful and inspiring lyrics.
These guys had an amazing jump-start, as their first Gig was in a sold-out soccer stadium in Utrecht, the Netherlands. They wrote the winning song in a contest, which resulted in them debuting in front of this (20K) audience.
The first EP was released not long after that, but soon the band realized that the advantage of this jump-start would turn out to be their one disadvantage in time: they hadn’t had the time to mature both as artists as well as songwriters. They decided not to let their desire for success get in the way of their shared mission, their calling to bring honest, balanced and brilliant music to the world. Even though they knew that this would take time. Now, after playing several tours through Europe and polishing both their stage performance and their music…
Now is that time…
By the end of June 2018, Charmplay released the first single (In the mood / I.T.M) of the brand new EP. The reviews and response proved all their effort and patience worth wile: only three days after the release, “I.T.M.” found its way to a greater public, thanks to the airplay on “3FM” (Dutch, national radio station). Furthermore, this first release landed them several offers from both booking- and publishing agencies worldwide. Because of the band’s strongly independent character, most offers are just carefully taken into consideration (for the time being).
Still overwhelmed by the extreme response and positive feedback on the first release, Charmplay already released their second single (“Rising”) the 25th of October 2018.
