However, this is not the case with ‘I’ll Never Tell,’ which I think along with ‘Creepy Little Story,’ paints the most vivid of images. (Coincidentally, this is the track with no video feature on her blog, perhaps because it’s too explicit in its content?)
Bear in mind for a second that I’m a crusty old punk (and a shallow one at that) but I’ve got to say that I felt real pangs of emotion when listening to this tale of a woman who will accept an abusive relationship rather than be left on her own.
‘Creepy Little Story’ deals with Charlotte’s childhood and how the creepy little girl in the song grew up to become Charlotte herself.
If it were all about seeking acceptance, then I would say that as far as The Glass Child is concerned, it’s mission accomplished. Just where Charlotte Eriksson goes from here, we’ll have to wait and see. Personally, I think the melodic rock and pop-punk genres are waiting with welcoming arms extended.
This debut EP was released through Broken Glass Records and is available now from all major download stores.
