Amidst the uncertainty and grief in these surreal times, CHARLIE TREES’ latest single, ‘Smile Back’ brings some much-needed light within all darkness. Following on from his first release of 2020, ‘Trees’, Charlie continues to reach his genre-defining sound to the masses.
Another collaboration with Yrk Rd and SludgeWizard, the laidback guitars and dreamy undertones takes us through a cosmic trip, as Charlie shows how to embrace the positivity he wants to see in the world. Alongside the single comes a film by No1, a music video, that fittingly demonstrates the happiness Charlie brings to those he cherishes.
The themes of the new single and its accompanied film showcase a different side to Charlie Trees, bringing positivity and love to the forefront. ‘Smile Back’ serves as a reminder to ignore the bad vibes, spend time with the ones we love and awaken our third-eye. The 4/20 loving, Grime-Bap MC uses his hallucinogenic experiences to create music that comes with a message, one that is more relevant now than ever.
