On YNF Entertainment Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Charlotte Sands, a pop/rock artist, channels her experiences as an outsider into empowering art in her ethereal pop anthem Alright, which is out now on all digital platforms.
“I want to be the big sister to those who feel like freaks,” said Charlotte Sands. “My intention with my music is to create a safe space for people to feel accepted and celebrated for their weirdness and diversity. When people feel seen and supported, the world becomes a better place.”
Outside of her loving family’s home, Charlotte always felt like a lone wolf. Throughout middle school and high school, she floated aimlessly on the edges of social circles in an effort to fit in. The electric blue-haired artist, on the other hand, seems to be a lifeline for people from Generation Z and beyond who are also plagued by these same feelings of angst, anxiety, and alienation. Through self-reflection, unending effort, and a perilous journey that included stealing her mother’s car; avoiding a vital flight; she channeled those haunting emotions into her most powerful work yet by taking a chance on social media.
Charlotte’s multicolored tunes are bubbly and compellingly hooky, grandly air, angsty, emotional touched, punky, and metallic, frequently in a similar melody. Her music separates predispositions and marks of shame frequently connected with pop.

It’s easy to understand why MTV referred to Charlotte’s 2022 as a “banner year.” She played 103 shows, including summer tours across the country and abroad as the opening act for big-name artists like YUNGBLUD, My Chemical Romance, and The Maine in front of 32,000 people; a North American headlining tour in the fall, many of which were sold out; and Bonnaroo, Forecastle, Austin City Limits, South by Southwest, and So What! festival performances Both Riot Fest and Boston Calling A number of international dates in 2023 are almost fully booked at this point.
Through her leaked single, Dress, in 2020, many people found Charlotte for the first time on TikTok. The uptights, who were appalled that Harry Styles was featured on the cover of Vogue in a dress, found the song to be a reviving thank you. Dress spent ten weeks on the US Pop Charts and was played by more than 200 multi-format stations around the world, making it one of the biggest independent stories of the year. There have been more than 35 million streams of Dress thus far.
Charlotte Sand’s Career
However, Charlotte’s career did not begin with the overnight success of a viral song; rather, she has been working hard for nearly a decade, and her success is a result of her broadly resonant message and her unwavering dedication to her work. With her trusted longtime producer Danen Reed Rector and a motley assortment of creative conspirators ranging from pop and alt artists like Mokita and The Maine to alt-rock bands like Underath and Sleeping With Sirens, Charlotte has released 27 singles and 2 EPs since 2018. Over 135 million streams have been added to her catalog, with an average of 1.9 million listeners per month.
When the pandemic struck, Charlotte had to choose whether to return home or remain alone and isolated in Nashville, where her future was uncertain. She was working with Danen as she booked her flight, and the piano melody he was playing enticed her to stay. The lyrics to Charlotte’s single “Alright,” which was based on that musical motif, express the hopelessness she was experiencing at the time.
“Through writing that song, I made a choice for my future self—it was the light at the end of the tunnel—and now I am in that light,” said Charlotte.
Charlotte has finally found the community she yearned for as a child, and she made it for other social outcasts.
“I was bullied as a kid, but I’ve realized now the support I was seeking as a teen is here,” explained Charlotte. “This is all bigger than me, and this past year of shows I’ve been able to actually meet people I’ve interacted with online, and that’s given me a lot of hope in humanity.”
After the release of “Alright“, Charlotte has declared an organization with the JED Foundation, a not-for-profit that attempts to safeguard profound wellbeing and forestall self destruction for youngsters and grown-ups, with the expectation that the tune will assist with eliminating the shame around emotional well-being inside her fanbase. The organization will incorporate restricted version Charlotte Sands x JED Establishment stock, with a part of continues helping the not-for-profit.
“We wrote this song with the hope that it could remind even one person that life does go on and nothing is forever,” Charlotte added. “The future can be so daunting especially in times of uncertainty, and it can so often feel like you’re stuck without a way out, but this song is a sign to keep moving forward because it will get better.”
