Federal Charm drop their highly anticipated third studio album Passenger on Sept 14th, It’s is an rebirth of a kind for Federal Charm with new vocalist Tom Guyer taking pole position on this recording.

Federal Charm have a Classic Rock vibe infused with a modern take day on socio-economic issues, they have a loose and colorful style that resonates across Passenger in the way the songs are structured and delivered. Tracks like ‘Sinner’ and ‘Emerald Haze’ are reminiscent of bands of days gone by with hints of Thin Lizzy and Free crossing the mind.

This band has it’s own unique voice, unlike many of the cookie cutter bands out there who write songs like paint by numbers these guys have engrossed themselves in their sound and that resonates across the album. This helps you feel more invested in Passenger, with ‘Nowhere Is Home’ possibly one of the standout tracks on the album you get all that angst and emotion through your speakers which helps you embrace Federal Charm with open arms.

It’s great to see the evolution of a band and the journey a band have taken, Passenger is one such evolution that shows Federal Charm are more than heading in the right direction and with a Co-Headlining UK Tour with The Bad Flowers and Those Damn Crows just around the corner theres no better time to indulge yourself.


Released Sept 14th Passenger is highly recommended.
