about

Charlie, Baby is the second full-length album from St. Louis dream-pop duo, Spectator. The wife and husband pair weave together this new collection of songs encompassing themes of love, loss, and growth. Each track bends these ideas into different angles, casting prismatic shapes against a darkening haze. Voltaic guitars and percussion dart in one direction while tender vocals and dreamy synth drift in another. Meditative lyrics reveal a sweet sentiment, a warm glow on the horizon.

Charlie, Baby reflects on the lonely nights, the empty hearts seeking fulfillment, and the comforting feeling of holding on to memories even as they fade out of focus. It is being released in Scandinavia, Europe, and the US on Nordic Records.
