Following the September release of single Where’s My Tribe? Charlene Soraia has shared the second track from her forthcoming Where’s My Tribe? album. The new single Tragic Youth sees Charlene’s haunting voice exploring the exorcism of our demons past. While confronting the fear of those that lie ahead. Speaking of the track, Charlene said:
“Tragic Youth is about the involuntary process of laying one’s inalterable past to rest before they believe they are ready to do so. The abstraction and resistance to fight the urge to ‘bite the hand that feeds’ despite desperately seeking change, is also explored in this song. Wanting change yet resisting new experiences despite knowing that to create is to destroy and that rebirth only follows death.”
Tragic Youth comes in the wake of her stunning performance on the self produced, solo recorded single Where’s My Tribe? This latest release sees Charlene Soraia bolster her reputation as a truly exceptional songwriter. With a rich, almost Chanson vocal melody, Soraia’s gentle voice gradually builds emotion and tension. Rising over a guitar track which can only be described as virtuosic.
Signed to UK indie label Peacefrog (José González, Little Dragon), her cover of The Calling’s Wherever You Will Go for a TV advert, was an accidental smash. Hitting No.3 in the charts and over 60 million Spotify hits in the process.
Where’s My Tribe is due January 25th 2019 on Peacefrog Records. All songs were recorded by Charlene in her flat with no edits, no autotune, and in one take. Revealing the raw, pure beauty of the music.
