Charmless i are energetic indie-rock foursome, formed by Dutch singer-songwriter Alex Pasveer, and ably assisted by Rutger van Mourik, Bart Klomp and Auke Haaksma to complete the line-up.
The band have been drip feeding singles over the past few months with a view to releasing a debut EP before the close of 2018, and ‘Rabbit Hole’ is the third in that series. It is a scintillating indie-rock tune, navigating a perfect path between riotous noise, rampaging riffs and catchy-as-they-come sing-a-long moments. It’s got the lot; attitude, aggression, a whirl of scorching riffs, pounding percussion, bubbling bassline and a sliver of synth. Not to mention the concentrated, succulent verses and a chorus that would yield a singalong from the shyest of festival crowd. While there is more than a mild debt to mid ’90s British guitar bands, it doesn’t sound drab, rehashed or outdated. This is just a tune, and one bursting with vitality.
