Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs debut video for new single ‘Be Glamorous’

Be Glamorous

Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs have revealed the glitter-tastic video to their new single, ‘Be Glamorous’, out 20th May 2013 on Heavenly Recordings.

The single — taken from the debut album ‘Clarietta’, which is released the following week on the 27th May — is accompanied by a shimmering video that sees the band get all (New York) dolled up. Glitter and lipstick a go-go!

Speaking to Noisey which premiered the video, Charlie said: “The whole beauty of a guitar is that you can use three chords and run in any direction. There is no need for anything safe and no particular thing that you have to remain loyal to. That’s where the glamour and danger come from… not specifically from the feather boas, but the ambiguity. I’m not saying that all the bands in Britain should sparkle and pout, but maybe there is a little twinkle of the eye needed.”

Pouting at the camera, there’s a deliberately mixed up beauty here. The stretched, pleading vocals recall Tom Verlaine but Charlie Boyer has the ambivalent sexuality of a young Mick Jagger — yet with a sense of innocent experimentation.” - Clash Magazine
