Tour Announce + Live Video: Charlotte Cardin’s “Dirty Dirty”

The soulful singer songwriter 
Charlotte Cardin has six new songs and she wants you to hear them. Her upcoming EP, Main Girl, tells a story driven by Charlotte’s observations of the human connection and how people inhabit them. For Charlotte, music is a way to uncover how we interact in the world. Main Girl EP reveals Charlotte’s obsession with not only human relationships, but her ability to craft an emotionally wrought tune that will linger in the listener’s head.

“Human beings, in general, inspire me. I find them quite intriguing. If I meet someone new and they make me feel a certain way I’m going to write about it and it’s going to transform into a story that may have not necessarily happened. It’s that initial feeling that inspires me.”

In this stripped down live video of “Dirty Dirty” the black and white element is a perfect fit for the performance adding a layer of emotion to the already emotionally provoking song. Charlotte shows a vulnerable side to her performance and it sounds pretty great.

“I can hear how my songwriting has grown when I listen to it. That’s been really cool. The EP is the first real proof of what I’ve done and I can see my whole journey of what I went through to get there. It’s amazing to hear how I evolved throughout the songs and I hope to continue to do so.”

Along with getting Main Girl out on the shelves and in the ears of the people she is hitting the road this fall for a slew of dates with fka Chet faker, Nick Murphy. Sounds rad. Can we come?
