Molly With Charles is an alt-R&B and pop-soul duo that emerged from Berkeley, California, circa 2016. Through Molly with Charles, the band seeks to convey raw, introspective emotion with an emphasis towards acrobatic musicality and songwriting.
The two members that comprise the band, Molly Arizona and Charles Nutrivore, met in their high school years and committed the summer after their graduation towards writing a handful of songs in the two weeks before singer Molly Arizona would frequent the East Coast for university. This myriad of songs would go on to become their first body of work, Q+M, including a feature from DMV-based singer Marco McKinnis. Released in January 2017, they steadily gained buzz on the strength of their lead single Playing with the Moon, which has currently merited over 750,000+ streams across all DSPs and with praise from publications like Indie Shuffle.
After releasing a string of whimsical pastel-like selection of records beginning early 2017, the duo prepares for their most comprehensive body of work, Ownership.
