Charlie & Margot, the musical project of Matteo DeBenedetti, has shared the single “Lonely” from upcoming debut album Joyride. The 8-song LP, out April 7th, 2023 spans Indie, Americana, and Alternative sounds. Produced by longtime friend and collaborator Erik Kase Romero (the Front Bottoms, Lorde, The Bouncing Souls), the fully live-tracked LP seeks to capture a sense of urgency.
Matteo DeBenedetti says about the track “Lonely”:
Lonely is written about self evaluation during a time of intense isolation, in this instance, during the quarantine and subsequent months. It has a lot to do with managing my insecurities, and creating a healthy perception of how I see myself vs how others see me in the world, and managing expectations between life partners while growing to try to understand each other.
Charlie & Margot is the brainchild of New Jersey native Matteo DeBenedetti who has toured the DIY circuit of the East Coast for the last decade. 2019 brought an “unprecedented moment of introspection”, and out of the uncertainty, Charlie & Margot was born as a solo songwriting venture, taking its name from Matteo and his wife’s two dogs.
