In The Spotlight

Charmplay – “Rush”

Formed in 2017 in Hilversum, this Dutch indie-pop quartet consists of Robert Been, Sergei Christian, Kaj van Hooijdonk and Gio Sliwa. They initially achieved success as a touring band in 2018, playing across Europe and the Dutch Antilles. Drawing inspiration from bands like The Killers, Bastille and The 1975, they debuted with “In The Mood” in 2020 and performed as support act for Sheppard.

With a sophisticated production blending indie-pop with sunlit tropical tones, their new single gives the intricate melody some summery island vibes. Kicking off with a mellow indie pop foundation, they soon shower it with sunshiny luminescence. With lively drums, joyous guitars and exuberant vocals tugging at your dancing feet, this zesty, high-spirited tune will rush you straight to paradise.
