On a Safer Scene With Eva Hendrick

Charly Bliss have the perfect balance of sugary pop and rattling distorted guitars. They are a 90’s retrospective topped off with lead singer Eva Hendrick’s snarky vocals. It’s no wonder they have opened for Sleater Kinney and Tokyo Police Club. Honest on and off stage, Eva spoke candidly with us about sexism she’s faced on the road.

Freya Wilcox & the Howl have been making a racket in the NYC scene since she moved from Australia about five years ago, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to chat with her for Safer Scene.
