Beginning life recording in his bedroom at the age of 15, PODGE is the creative tour de force of (now 20 year old) Adam Charo.
Armed with a synthesizer and a laptop, these sessions gave birth to his self-released debut album The Hero Appears, setting out his predication for the whimsical aesthetics of Japanese pop culture, and all wrapped up in a playful, joyful and colourful confection of catchy electro-pop. The latest record, Eatmore Fruit EP, follows a similar trajectory and is fronted by magical single ‘What Happened’. A big smiley ray of sunshine, ‘What Happened’ is joyous, giddy and uplifting as it playfully flutters along a jaunty beat and and glitchy synth through a beautiful imaginative world filled with colourful ideas and kaleidoscopic sounds, and bound together in hypnotic majesty. It’s an eccentric, off-kilter and Technicolor pop adventure of playfully experimental arrangements and sounds that are gentle whirring together and filled with breezy vibes and sense of joy. A magical, sunshine filled slice of pop perfection.
