Tre. Charles lays it bare in his poignant debut EP, “Currently.”
With a vulnerability rare in today’s social media-driven society, Tre. Charles breaks down what it means to be a young Black man in America. His debut EP, “Currently” spans four tracks, including “Lately.”, “Memory.”, “Mantra.” and “Stressin’., which divulge all from meditation to life’s limitations to the invasive powers of the internet.
“There’s strength in vulnerability, but a lot of times, we don’t give each other the room we need to be vulnerable or flawed”, Tre. begins to explain, looking to the meaning behind his brand new EP. “I think in order to move forward, we need to let go of control. This project is more of a journal of where I am right now in my healing process, and it highlights these nuances through a lens of vulnerability, with the aim of bringing honesty and insight to the forefront of the conversation, which will hopefully inspire and sustain growth”.
Written, produced, and written entirely by Tre. in his home studio in North Carolina, “Currently.” is more than just its lyrics. He’s adopted a sound that glides seamlessly between multiple genres, including R&B, soul, indie, and rock – something that may strike a chord with fans of Frank Ocean or Daniel Caesar. Alongside soulful undertones and his emotive delivery, his experimentation with electronic music and lo-fi pop add a fresh element to the burgeoning artist’s archive.
