The 22-year-old singer-songwriter, CHARLIE HOUSTON is following her Spotify USA Viral 50 track, ‘Wide Awake’, which she recorded with the Grammy-nominated electronic duo, ODESZA with her new single, ‘Dinosaurs In The Garden’ – out today via Arts & Crafts.
Speaking about the new single which finds Charlie tapping into a more grunge-pop sound, she says: “‘Dinosaurs In The Garden’ is about the fear of getting your heart broken while in a relationship. While you have no reason to suspect it’s going to happen, there is always looming anxiety about the fact that you’ve allowed yourself to fall for someone and now can’t control whether it works out or not.”
Houston, whose “contemporary R&B-inflected pop straightforwardly addresses the meaningful mundanities of Gen Z life” (Bandcamp) is following her 2021 genre-bending debut five-song EP, I Hate Spring which received praise from Zane Lowe, Rolling Stone, and SPIN, while landing a Spotify Times Square Billboard. As she prepares the release of her second EP, due out later this year, she will be joining ODESZA on their mammoth stadium tour which commences tomorrow (29th July), as well as concluding her cross-Canada support tour with JUNO Award 2022 Artist Of The Year, Charlotte Cardin.
