Charly Bliss are releasing a new album, Young Enough, on May 10 via Barsuk. Previously they shared a video for its first single, "Capacity," which was one of our Songs of the Week (and the video was directed by Michelle Zauner aka Japanese Breakfast). Now they have shared another new song from the album, "Chatroom," via a video for it. Maegan Houang directed the twisted clip, which stars frontwoman Eva Hendricks as the member of a cult. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Hendricks had this to say about the song and video in a press release: "I was sexually assaulted by someone I dated and I wrote 'Chatroom,' and most of Young Enough, as a way of processing that experience and explaining it to myself. 'Chatroom' is a song about reaching ecstatic joy through consuming rage. Simply put, it's a colossal 'fuck you' and a celebration of reaching the point of a 'fuck you' that isn't diluted by self-blame or apologies.

"I feel so lucky to have worked with Maegan Houang on this video. I felt an immediate sense of mutual trust, and she produced a treatment that directly addresses the themes of trauma, misogyny and mind control without resorting to a literal representation of the lyrics. It's tonally the darkest video we've ever made, and I think it anchors the intent of song which might otherwise be obscured by the fact that it's also our most direct foray into larger-than-life pop music."
