Brooklyn power-pop trio Charly Bliss are releasing their sophomore record Young Enough on May 10 via Barsuk. Following their critically-acclaimed 2017 debut, Guppy, the new record sees the band expanding their sound from earnest guitar-based indie pop to add cool synths and crisp songwriting.

Our Song of the Day, “Capacity,” unpacks the feelings of needing to please everyone while doing as much as possible. “I was raised an East Coast witch/Like doing nothing’s sacrilegious,” Eva Hendricks sings. “Triple overtime ambitious/Sentimental, anxious kid.” The problem with living this is eventually you’ll reach capacity, as Hendricks now is. She’s killing her inner people-pleaser. “Sometimes nothing is delicious.”

Charly Bliss will be in Seattle on Saturday, June 22 to play the Crocodile. “Capacity” comes with a glitzy video directed by Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast, who makes a guest appearance as a news anchor. Watch it below.
