“Making Young Enough was the most fulfilling creative experience I’ve had thus far in my life,” says Charly Bliss' Eva Hendricks. “Not only because I’m proud of the songs that ended up on the record, but also because I’m proud of myself and my bandmates for putting in an obsessive amount of work into making sure the album would be the best it could be.”
Young Enough, Charly Bliss’ follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut Guppy, was embraced by critics and fans alike in a way that sophomore efforts often fall short.

“We’re so excited to release Supermoon, a small collection of songs that helped us get there,” says Hendricks. When listening to Supermoon, fans of the band can follow the path from Guppy, a brash punk album made by a group of scrappy upstarts, to the new sense of depth, maturity and pop sensibility found on Young Enough.
“I think Supermoon fills in the cracks and enhances the narrative of Young Enough,” says Hendrix, “It shows you how we got where we were going.”
