Indie sensation Charli Adams shares the new single ‘Cheer Captain’ and announces the arrival of debut LP ‘Bullseye’, set for release July 16th via Color Study (Haux, Lav, Rosie Carney). Marking the latest installment from the musician’s growing collection of relatable and heartfelt pop anthems, ‘Cheer Captain’ sees Adams wave goodbye to a youth spent in a deeply conservative, Christian environment in Alabama where she put cheerleading, worship leading, her family, and often toxic relationships with men (and God) above all. “‘Cheer Captain’ is a resentful and regretful song about struggling with a savior complex as a serial people pleaser”, explains the rising songwriter. “I desperately wanted to be everything for everyone so I became a customizable human being that often went against everything I actually am. It’s always felt like the thesis of this project as I touch on my relationship with religion, my parents, and men. I grew up in Alabama and I was captain of the cheerleading team in my freshman year of high school and a worship leader at a church. I think it’s safe to say I was struggling with my identity, in fact, I really hated it all so a year later, I started school online and moved to Nashville for music”.

The songs on ‘Bullseye’ document this early twenties coming of age, against the backdrop of spiritual evolution. Seamlessly edging her way into the alt-rock landscape, the young musician has already connected with key press champions including The Fader, Billboard, and The Line Of Best Fit, whilst earning welcome comparisons to contemporaries such as Phoebe Bridgers, Julia Jacklin, and Sharon Van Etten – positioning her perfectly ahead of ‘Bullseye’s’ release early next year. Detailing her lead track and the process of breaking out of that former world, Adams explained: “I wrote ‘Didn’t Make It’ about trying way too hard to be with someone and cutting your losses. When there’s memories and nostalgia tied to someone it’s hard to let go and accept it for what it is. I was stuck on a loop with this guy when […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
