A reflective ride on the Staten Island ferry.

July 04, 2018

New York based post punk outfit BODEGA are about to put out their debut album ENDLESS SCROLL via What's Yr Rupture on Friday. In anticipation, they've just shared a new song and video, titled "Charlie." The song, as Ben Hozie explains, is a tribute to a departed friend. “On New Year’s Eve in 2007 my best friend Charlie drowned in the Charleston River... I’ve been trying to write him a worthy song since then and only recently found the melody that felt like him." Check out the self-directed clip, which traces a journey on the Staten Island ferry, above.
