CHARLIE DeCARLO – “THE CHASE”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
Empire State songwriter Charlie DeCarlo continues rising towards indie stardom on his latest single “The Chase” — a storming folk pop forecast that recalls Neutral Milk Hotel, The Decemberists, and Blind Pilot. Premiering today, it’s the second breath taken from the Buffalo-based musician’s high flying debut album Paper Birds, which shines with an undeniable sense of wonder and scenic exploration. In case you missed it, lead single “Hold Your Ground” debuted last month along with a stunning music video that you can watch here.
“I wrote ‘The Chase’ about a person who’s lost in a world of uncertainty. The character reflects on the choices he made throughout his life and begins asking the existential question, “Is it all a give, or is it all a take?” This song is a piece to an overall story about two people falling in love in a changing world, and ‘The Chase’ is the point in which the relationship comes to an end. The character feels cheated and upset about losing something he’s built his life around.”
Release Date: Winter 2020
