Watch & Listen
Pearl Charles lives in the moment, seeking excitement whether it leads her down a dark, dusty road or into the arms of a trouble-making lover. Her full-length debut album, Sleepless Dreamer, describes late night revelry, love affairs, running away and running towards, serenading the sunrise through whirlwind stories of her native Los Angeles, the city, the canyon, the desert, and the road. On a quest to discover the truest version of herself, Charles embraces the feeling of not being settled, a person who always restlessly wants more from life and is willing chase it, wherever it may lead her.
Sleepless Dreamer finds her soulful, often sultry voice gliding through songs tinged with cosmic Americana, a little disco, some classic rock & roll, and a whole lot of that smooth AM gold. Passion, psychedelics and heartbreak inform the highs and lows she rides through the album. Finally able to see clearly through the smoke and mirrors of her surroundings, Charles departs on a consequent journey of questioning and soul-searching, eventually hitting the road in the inevitable search for answers.
Acid Tongue is the fuzz-pop brainchild of Seattle's Guy Keltner (formerly of stoner-rock outfit Fox and the Law) & Ian Cunningham - perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Blending elements of AM-radio soul, vintage psychedelia, folk and slacker rock, the band has developed an avid cult following throughout the US and the UK.
After years of extensive traveling throughout the United States, as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents' generation. Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream-states and drifter-culture, Acid Tongue seeks to enlighten listeners to their swingin', contemplative lifestyle.
In addition to Keltner's lyrical ode to all those suffering from the American condition, Cunningham incorporates a brand of dripping visuals that pay homage to Southern California skate culture, left-wing political activism and 90s Nickelodeon television. Together, the stark imagery and aesthetic has helped the band maintain a lasting impression both online and at their raucous, blown-out live shows.
