Brighton musician Charlie Moss has returned bigger and better than ever with his new single ‘Scared To Be Lonely’.

Following support shows with The Sherlocks and Maisie Peters, Charlie Moss and his comrades – Ash Powell, Scott Carty, Oli Portcreate – create harmonious indie pop-rock with emotive lyrics and raw riffs.

Taking from a wide range of influences like Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Seagirls and The Smiths, Charlie has made a name for himself making him impossible to ignore.

‘Scared To Be Lonely’ has lovely dreamy guitar layers over the upbeat tempo; it’s a feel-good indie anthem.

Speaking to TrueStyleMusic, Charlie said: “The name of the track came from the message I try to convey in the song; so pretty much as it sounds, fearing being alone, or losing the one you love.

“Lyrically I just wanted to say everything that you feel when you’re fearing losing someone. In a bittersweet way, I always think that when you lose someone close, you want to act as if you don’t care when deep down you’re dreading the thought of having to live without them.

“Finding it hard to sleep, batting with your mind and also not wanting to think about them but at the same time be willing to do anything to have that person back.”

This has lead Charlie selling out venues in his hometown for music giants This Feeling, as well as garnering more support from BBC Introducing, Gigslutz and Amazing Radio.

On the horizon for Charlie Moss is a UK Tour and securing bookings for major UK Festivals so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, listen to the single below and leave an ICM Rating out of 10.
