BODEGA Album is Out Now, Music Video is a Heartwarming Tribute

BODEGA’s debut album, Endless Scroll, was released last Friday, July 6th via What’s Your Rupture? A few days before the album was released, the band released the video to the single “CHARLIE.” The track is a heartwarming tribute to BODEGA’s Ben Hozie’s friend Charlie, who passed away.

“On New Year’s Eve in 2007 my best friend Charlie drowned in the Charleston River,” explained Ben Hozie. “We had spent every day of that fall semester together; playing records and scheming plans for our great unformed rock and roll band at the University of South Carolina. I’ve been trying to write him a worthy song since then and only recently found the melody that felt like him. For the video, me and Nikki [Belfiglio] took a day-trip to Staten Island and took turns photographing each other.”
