What happens when you combine a love for off-the-wall manga series Nichijou and an equal love for Cornelius, Japan’s very own modern day Brian Wilson? Podge is what happens. Armed with a synthesizer and a laptop, Podge’s creative force 20 year old Adam Charo, began recording in his bedroom at the age of 15.
The results of these bedroom sessions can be found on his self-released debut album ‘The Hero Appears’. Heavily influenced by the whimsical aesthetics of Japanese pop culture, Podge describes his sound as “joyful, catchy, glitchy and uplifting” and with new single ‘Yuka-Peno’ it’s not hard to see why.
