Rather than being inspired by a specific genre, but rather an era of music, Charlie D pulls inspiration from the nostalgic musical palettes of late 80s up to early 2000s such as shoegaze, acid house, indie garage rock, 90s alt grunge, synth-pop and subtle hints of techno. With lyrics drenched in irony and reverb, Charlie D croons about the human condition and state of the world satirically and unapologetically.
