Marketplace – Charlie

Marketplace are Joel O’Beirne (vocals/bass), Evie Rhodes (vocals/guitar), Jack Purcell (guitar), Matthew Short (synth) and Ross Dixon (drums). Only a year and a half ago, they released their debut single Evergreen. In fact, it was no more than a demo. Even better: for some band members it was the first time they picked up their instruments. After widespread acclaim, their sophomore track Hard 2 Love followed a few months later.

Apparently, they took the COVID-19 period off, and who can blame them? Now, the British 5-piece resurface with new single Charlie. As far as I’m concerned, third time’s the charm, for it’s their most catchy and confident track yet. It combines hand claps, a xylophone, fresh guitar melodies and instant sing-along lyrics into a Spring anthem. Vocally, O’Beirne’s somewhat indifferent way of singing is a great tandem with Rhodes’ angelic backings.
