Lively surf-rockers Caravãna Sun start the new year with ‘Charlie’, their first single after signing with Berlin’s Embassy of Music, joining a roster that includes Björk, Robyn and fellow Aussie acts Ball Park Music and Husky.
‘Charlie’ marks the beginning of a new chapter for Caravãna Sun. An uplifting jangle-pop number, the song is an empathetic, almost cathartic experience. Though on first impressions ‘Charlie’ might appear overtly melancholic, the message behind it is nothing but positive: you are not alone.
“We’ll present [Charlie] in all its glory live. We’ll sing but more importantly, we’ll be singing with the crowd. This song is about connecting with people and we intend to do that with as many people as possible.”
Described as “the most explosive performance ever witnessed” by LOST Magazine, Caravãna Sun has always been known for the raw energy of their live shows. From the huge crowd singalongs to the quiet soulful heart moments, they always keep their focus on the connection to their audience. Their new music, without a doubt, will be no different.
From touring with iconic artists Madness and UB40 to swimming with whale sharks in Exmouth for the Whale Shark Festival, Caravãna Sun has built up quite the reputation beyond the sunny shores of Australia. By 2016 the band had performed at over 500 shows from all corners of the globe, released three full-length albums, Aya (2013), and critically acclaimed album Guerrilla Club (2016), with the Sydney Morning Herald calling it “a sonic treat" with 4/5 stars and ”An album so full of otherworldly imagery and highly evolved instrumentation” by Rhythms Magazine.
