There are several points in the 22 year timeline of Charlotte O’Connor that you might attribute to her metamorphosing into Charlotte OC, future music artist. The first was when she used to dress up as a witch as a child, stand at the end of her driveway staring at passers-by in a long black dress. The last was when she was in Berlin for a writing session for her debut album.
Finding herself at the Berghain, probably the best nightclub in the world, on Sunday afternoon, a new impulse hit the singer/songwriter. ‘I felt like somebody had just let me in on the biggest secret in the world. Certain things that I saw I could not believe,’ she says, of the temple to decadence. ‘I stayed for only a few hours but left inspired.’ Amid the darkness there was beauty. “It was the most amazing clash of the senses. I have thought about that afternoon many times since.”
Blackburn born Charlotte’s song writing inspiration began to chime to a new, ethereal beat. ‘The whole place just blew my mind. I wrote ‘Colour My Heart’ when I came back,’ which has become the song that would come to define her direction, a bewitching and unique ‘spooky gospel soul’. ‘I want my music to sound like Berlin feels. ‘Colour My Heart’ is how I hear Berlin.’
Monday November 25th sees the release of Charlotte’s E.P which includes “Colour My Heart”. The title track written by Charlotte, was produced and recorded by Tim Anderson (Solange, Sia) in LA.
