Blue Shirt Charlie bring Americana shaped to perfection. They never limit themselves to the genre, there are always melodies and styles bleeding in. Whatever this hybrid of sound they have created, has become their trademark sound-wherever you hear it. You might have heard of at least one of their singles on an indie playlist on account of how special their composition style is. This is their latest single, Misty.
I am usually averse to any love song directed to a person. It is something that has been overdone, yet here comes a band to change my entire opinion on things. In this day and age. With their simple two chord change for the verse section-glimmer and glitter changes the dimensions in which you hear the song. It reminds me of Costello’s Allison, though there are miles of difference. The creativity is in infatuating with a truth for this person, someone who takes up a chunk of your thoughts and dreams. The chorus will bring you goosebumps, like God was beaming you up with a bright light. Magicians with instruments is what Blue Shirt Charlie are. Surrounding the song, there are energies that will bring a smile to your face.
Though a movie surrounding Misty would be ideal, I felt this song would be great in a movie like Runaway Bride (1999) as well. The slow Americana concoction is something this band loves to really dwell and steep their music through. Listen to their other singles Crazy Woman and Shelter as well, and be sure to follow them for more brilliant music!
