New Audio: Introducing the Intimate and Swooning Electro Pop of Charles Fauna

Charlie Mischer is  Los Angeles, CA-born, Brooklyn-based jazz drummer and electronic producer and artist, who has written and recorded several singles last year under the name Paideia that received attention across the blogosphere; in fact, “Restless Child” was featured on Idolator’s Top 16 Alt-Pop Songs of the Year (So Far) playlist. Under the moniker Charles Fauna, Mischer further cement his growing profile for crafting thoughtful singer/songwriter-leaning electronic music — and as you’ll hear on Mischer’s latest single “Hypnosis” Mischer pairs lyrics that describe both a change in mentality and embracing the vulnerability that comes up by challenging your own point of view with a house music-leaning production featuring arpeggio-like piano chords, stuttering drum programming and swirling synths and electronics. And all of that gives the song a swooning, reeling urgency — the sort of urgency that comes when one’s established worldview is rocked by uncertainty.
