Charlotte Sands Is Alright

Mixing the melodic rush, fiery attitude and relentless energy of pop-punk with the kind of voice and instantly irresistible hooks that powers chart-bound pop stars, Charlotte Sands bridges the space between those two worlds. She’s just as comfortable opening for My Chemical Romance and YUNGBLUD as she is writing an appreciation of Harry Styles’ fashion choices with ‘Dress’, her biggest moment to date which has exceeded 35 million streams and spent ten weeks in the Top 40 on pop radio in the States. She’s firmly on a trajectory which mirrors Katy Perry’s breakthrough, when she was racing up the charts while performing on the Warped Tour. 2023 will see Charlotte’s profile accelerate, starting with today’s release of her new single Alright. The song is unveiled as Charlotte is currently embarking upon a major UK and European tour as guest to PVRIS.

Alright represents a subtle evolution in Charlotte’s style. The raw emotions and soaring voice that fans first connected to so powerfully are still at the forefront, but this time they’re placed within the context of a dynamite ballad in which electro-pop touchpoints and dramatic intensity presents Charlotte’s artistic identity in a way that can reach her widest audience to date. She wrote the song with its producer, fellow Nashville resident Danen Reed Rector.

Listen to Alright below:

Of the new track, Sands says, “Alright is about having hope when it feels nearly impossible and forcing yourself to see the light at the end of the tunnel, holding onto even the slightest chance that it will get better. We wrote this song with the hope that it could remind even one person that life does go on and nothing is forever. The future can be so daunting especially in times of uncertainty, and it can so often feel like you’re stuck without a way out, but this song is a sign to keep moving forward because it will get better.” Charlotte Sands grew up inspired by both fiery rock bands such as Taking Back Sunday and All Time Low, but also classic singer-songwriters such as Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt. By the time she was 18, she was eager to move from small town Massachusetts to a place that would help her to develop her own talents as a writer. So she found a roommate in Nashville via Craigslist, stole her mum’s car, and set off on a two-day drive to Music City.

Check out the video for single Tantrum below:

Her initial plan was to spend a year in Nashville before attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music. But she fell so hard into the creativity that the community provides that she didn’t want to leave. Instead she focused entirely on her songwriting, ramping up drastically during lockdown when she released seven singles in 2020  that were recorded in her bedroom studio. Since then, Sands has exceeded 135 million streams, including collaborations with Sleeping with SirensUnderoath and Mokita, as well as Loved You A Little with Taking Back Sunday and The Maine, which saw all three artists grace the cover of Rock Sound. In the live arena, she has played shows with My Chemical RomanceYUNGBLUDAva MaxCharlie PuthNicky Youre and T-Pain, hit festivals such as BonnarooRiot Fest and SXSW, and sold-out her own North American headline tour. Whatever she does, Charlotte’s goal is to create a safe space for people to feel accepted and celebrated for their individuality and diversity.
