Vancouver-based rock singer Charlie PS has a sound that can be described as a sonic melting pot. Inspired by a wide variety of rock and blues from legends of the 20th century such as Stevie Nicks and Ann Wilson, to modern rock artists that include Grace Potter and ZZ Ward, Charlie borrows elements of strong vocals and energetic riffs and uses them to create her own blended sound rooted in modern-rock.
Prompted by a tendency to consider the worst case scenario, ‘Down to the Devil’ is the latest single from her upcoming EP, Even If It Kills Me. The main hook, “Take my oh-weary soul, Take me down, down to the devil,” came to her after watching prison shows and noticing a recurring theme of southern influenced soundtracks. The chain sound was captured by continuously dropping an industrial chain on the studio floor until it made just the right sound to use as a sample, in order to call back to the inspiration.
