RISING ALT-POP SONGWRITER, PRODUCER AND PERFORMER CHARLES FAUNA BRINGS INTENSE FEELS WITH HIS FORTHCOMING EP "EULOGY"
Charles Fauna is a Brooklyn based artist who brings a brooding, eloquent style of dark electronic pop. His forthcoming EP "Eulogy" is a cathartic work of music that carries a heavy message about transcendental human connection and how hard it is to find. Feelings of tension and release set the overall tone of "Eulogy" as themes of loneliness and existentialism surface in Charles Fauna's songwriting about a tragic true story.
"EULOGY is the culmination of a year's worth of songwriting across New York's five boroughs. It tells the story of an individual who witnesses a random, tragic accident and their journey to find peace in impermanence and solace in human connection. It is a record about finding beauty in the darkest corners of our minds and lives." - Charles Fauna
LISTEN TO "EULOGY"
The production on "Eulogy" paints sulky yet beautiful dreamscapes. Tracks like "The Boatman" and "Wait To Come Over" are pensive, musically and lyrically, while others like "Another Good Person" or "Strangers" leave you touched by melancholic euphoria. It is obvious each melody, each lyric, the vocal delivery and every bit of production on this 7-track EP is dripping with passion and brilliant artistry. Charles Fauna is a rare, honest gem in a time where contemporary music seems to be losing its depth. If you are a fan of Bon Ivor's songwriting and Empire of the Sun's sonic vibe, then you will fall in love with "Eulogy" by Charles Fauna.
