Charli Adams – ‘Get High w/ My Friends’
Charismatic indie riser Charli Adams shares escapist anthem ‘Get High w/ My Friends’ – the newest cut taken from forthcoming LP ‘Bullseye’, set for release July 16th via Color Study (Haux, Lav, Rosie Carney).
Accompanied by visuals of the songwriter and her pet bunny Bodhi departing from reality together, the track is the lightest moment on an otherwise emotional debut record. ‘Get High…’ details the Alabama native’s intimate lockdown set-up “rolling through the kitchen” with friends:
“During lockdown, I had a crew of six girls in my covid bubble that would come over and just go off together.
“I share a lot of heavy shit on this album so I didn’t want to leave out this part of the story”, Adams explains. “I’m not encouraging escapism through drugs, it’s more about whatever helps you feel more present. Personally, I like doing drugs in the kitchen with my friends. It’s one of my favourite pastimes and it kinda kept me going through a really difficult year. It’s my ‘Put Your Records On’ or whatever…it’s my ‘fuck it, have fun’ song.”
Riding an impressive wave of momentum with acclaim from the likes of NPR, Billboard, The FADER, The Line Of Best Fit and Dork, not to mention pleasing comparisons to contemporaries Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee and Girl In Red, the cultured newcomer is certainly displaying ample potential, with her latest danceable effort showcasing yet another side of her songwriting prowess.
Ticking off thrilling collaborations alongside Ruston Kelly and Nightly in recent months, the Nashville-based musician continues to intensify anticipation levels for debut album ‘Bullseye’ (arriving July 16th), and with further singles yet to be revealed, Adams’ stature is only set to head one way.
Charli Adams’ ‘Get High w/ My Friends’ (mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens)) is out June 2nd via Color Study (Haux, Lav, Rosie Carney) and will be available on all digital platforms.
