Today, we debut ‘Only Place I Know’ by London-based duo Charlotte Spiral, the second track to be taken from their debut EP Ideal Life, which is due for release 7 February 2020 via Chapped Lips. Enveloping and haunting, listen to ‘Only Place I Know’ below.
‘Only Place I know’ was written as an immediate reflection on self-doubt,” the band say of the track. “The ‘only place I know’ in the chorus is the ‘place’ of self-doubt, which gradually moves towards hope within the verses and describes how someone close to you can help you gain confidence and belief in yourself.”
Exploring themes of self-hood, self-doubt, and ultimately self-belief, Ideal Life is a dark and elegant examination of rejection and defeat.
Charlotte Spiral will perform their first headline show at Servent’s Jazz Quarters in Dalston on 4 February to celebrate the launch of the Ideal Life EP. Tickets are available HERE.
Charlotte Spiral is a collaboration between Amy Spencer and Avi Barath. The pair met at Goldsmiths College in London.
Charlotte Spiral’s debut EP “Ideal Life” is due for release 7 February 2020 via Chapped Lips. The band will perform at Servant’s Jazz Quarters to celebrate the EP launch on 4 February and will support Alice Boman at her Union Chapel show on 25 February.
