Jackie Charles is a project uniting three musicians in Berlin, a city of junctions, passing points, and subterranean collectives.
Hazy, drifting pop music with a dreamy feel, the three-piece split their time between rooftop bars in Berlin and a Norwegian fishing boat.
New album 'Future Fantasies' is out now, a fantastical yet directly melodic offering that takes the project to another realm.
Two rare London shows have been confirmed for November, with Jackie Charles shooting a full video for album highlight 'BABY'.
A song about taking a step back to find yourself once more, the lyrics are remarkably open, discussing mental health difficulties with remarkable frankness.
The video picks up on this, taking Jackie Charles a step further in this conversation.
Kaja tells us that the video is about “how it feels to be on this earth when everything is overwhelming. And you want it all to end but you're also terrified of that thought. And the world is so beautiful, and the world is so ugly and people are so amazing and people are so horrible. The video is full of symbolism and only the brave can watch it all the way through.”
Tune in now.

21 London Rough Trade East (in-store & signing)
