Charles On TV has released his nostalgic new single, “Another Reason Why,” which tells the story of uncertainty of a newfound romantic relationship. The track is carried by whimsical strings and groovy basslines. Listen to it now below.
Inspired largely by the conversations he overhears on the street, the social media tiffs he scrolls through, and his personal relationships—with others and himself, he shares, “I keep this contextual backdrop in mind when I make music, even if I don’t always allude to ugly systems and scary prospects explicitly. It’s a strange balance between wanting to make art that can serve as an escape or sanctuary and wanting to tell the hard truth. I’m still figuring out that balance.“
“Another Reason Why” sees Charles On TV enter a new era of his artistry, serving as his most intentional work to date as he dives into his love for classic neo-soul. A jack of all trades, he recently took on the role of composer, creating a 30-minute psychedelic soundscape for M.O.M Radio. Charles On TV’s fans pour in from all over the city for his one-of-a-kind live performances, taking the stage at iconic NYC venues including the Bowery Electric (Dec 2021) and Union Pool (Feb 2022), where he performed his debut headlining show. He is set to perform at The Knitting Factory July 23rd (tickets available here). Using his love for colorful, impressionistic, and soulful instrumentation, Charles On TV has created a streamline of introspective tunes that cross oceans and decades, and is sure to make a lasting mark on the world of music for years to come.
