Global Charming exorcise the banality of everyday life, knowing the planet is doomed and the printer is out of ink again.

On their  debut album ‘Mediocre, brutal’ (Subroutine Records) the Amsterdam based post- punk quartet explore the monotony of daily routines, survival of the dullest kind; because boring is intense. Fuelled by the lingering energy of repetitive rhythm, wayward guitars wash away the dead taste of vending machine coffee, breaking free from frustration with sharp jolts. Lyrics about cutlery and new coats blend with Global Charming’s lean compositions, marked by playful synths and percussion.

The group, made up of familiar figures in the Dutch underground scene as musicians, record producers and visual artists, recorded the album at Schenk Studio, Amsterdam. Debut ‘Mediocre, brutal’ was self-produced and mixed by Mikey Young.

Follow the rhythm of a plate spinning on a tabletop: the acceleration, the sudden halt. Again, and again, and again.

Global Charming is Jilles van Kleef, Sara Elzinga, Sjoerd Bartlema, and Fokke de Wit.

 —  

Hailing from Amsterdam, Global Charming make infectious, occasionally heavy but never half hearted noise pop.” 
Under the Radar Mag 

Warmly familiar yet difficult to pin down, the album’s sound will likely be of huge interest to music lovers who’ve dug through the likes of Modern Lovers, Parquet Courts, and The Cool Greenhouse.”
