Pearl Charles releases new video

Pearl Charles shares her new video for the single "Minds A Mystery"

After the release of her self-titled debut EP via Burger Records and this fall’s limited edition 7″ via SuperFan 99 in the UK, Pearl Charles is back today to share a video for new song “Mind’s A Mystery.” A bonus track taken from the expanded version of her self-titled EP that Kanine will release on Record Store Day, “Mind’s A Mystery” comes just as Pearl prepares to kick off a fall West Coast tour tomorrow.

Speaking about the song and its video, Pearl said, “Mind’s A Mystery is a song about trying penetrate beyond the external facade and break down barriers in order to navigate the rabbit hole that is the inside of another’s mind and thought process. Directors Melodi Meadows & Asher Moss and I wanted to pair this song with a visual that emphasized the alluring intoxication of this pursuit and chose the desert in Joshua Tree to create our version of a mirage, a psychedelic dreamscape atmosphere that reflects both beautiful illusion as well as hazy confusion.”

At the young age of 23, Pearl Charles already has deep roots in the Los Angeles music community. Pearl started logging miles on the road with her first band, The Driftwood Singers, at age 18, followed by a lengthy stint drumming and singing in garage­-pop band The Blank Tapes. Along the way, Pearl collaborated with artists such as Jonathan Wilson, Stephen McBean (Black Mountain), Farmer Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks) and Johnathan Rice, as well as toured extensively internationally, supporting diverse artists such as Father John Misty, Matt Costa, Thee Oh Sees, Kim Deal, The Growlers, Allah Las and Mystic Braves. Despite all of this, she managed to find time to earn a BFA in Music from CalArts.

Embarking on a solo career in 2015, Pearl is set to solidify her own name and place by releasing a 6 song debut EP on Burger Records this summer. Pearl recorded her self-titled EP track by track with a select group of producers and a little help from her friends, many of whom are notable LA musicians in their own right, including Joel Jerome (La Sera, Cherry Glazerr) and Taylor Locke (Rooney). Though she draws inspiration from the legendary scenes of the 60’s and 70’s, from Laurel Canyon to The Factory, from Haight-Ashbury to Muscle Shoals, she also counts contemporary artists such as Tame Impala, Mac DeMarco, Sharon Van Etten and Jenny Lewis as influences.
