If anyone’s ever wondered what possesses a guy like me to get up early every Saturday morning, trudge to the other end of the beach and volunteer his time, come rain or shine, to play songs on radio to nobody in particular, then wonder no more. It’s for bands like Charlie Mayfair.
Charlie Mayfair first came to visit the Walk of Shame over a year ago. They were then, as they are now, wide eyed, impassioned and as full of wonder as their music is. Beautiful, enthusiastic and as graceful and polite as any group of kids you are ever likely to meet. Their music is forged on soaring harmonies, juxtaposing buoyant melodies with often heartfelt lyrics and tales of love, life and laughter.
As a live act they come into their own. The on stage chemistry between band members spills over in abundance, extending itself into the audience and urging everyone to let go for a few hours. These guys are truly awesome!
Charlie Mayfair are currently on tour to promote their newest single Tell her. Sharing their sound interstate they’ll bring a richer, more mature sound to the first EP Watch my Hands. This Brisbane 5 piece have come a long way in a short space of time, gaining support from triple j, FBi and SYN Fm whilst getting plenty of love on the blog scene from nerds such as myself and the mighty Who the Hell.
The single, Tell her, is yours as a free mp3 from the Charlie Mayfair bandcamp page. They’re in Sydney on September 1 playing the Vangaurd.
Be there or be the guy that looses out… No one likes that guy!
