Charles in the Kitchen was founded in early 2011 with the basic aim of playing one single gig of rock covers in a kitchen for Easter. It happened: the band’s five members invited a whole lot of friends and almost made the house collapse. A while after, they thought that it would be a pity not to try and play some more, and they started creating their own songs.
They took their time, played a few more gigs, and came up with a list of 12 rock songs that were released as their first album in March 2015. They then increased speed and wrote a second album that got released on local label Division Records in September 2016. The band played gigs around Switzerland for a while, got a new drummer and released a nice 7” split single with local grunge heroes Them Stones.
Now is the time for more fresh material: a brand new record is coming to life soon on Division Records, in the form of a 5 song EP called The Fifth Mechanism. From it we have the track “I Wanna Know” just for you on this sunny Sunday!
The Fifth Mechanism is a 5 song EP with more than 20 minutes of modern, powerful, melodic yet straightforward rock. 5 iconic songs, each with its own character and proper sound. Less is more, some say: the idea behind this 5 song EP is to deliver a fewer amount of musical pieces, but offering a wider display of styles and tastes, making every song sound unique.
