The follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘When the Clouds Clear EP’ , ‘In The End’ sees Charlie further developing the notion of stripped down pop songs; songs, not tracks, songs with an emotional sensibility that you don’t hear much these days.  
‘In The End’ features four concise tunes, none longer than two and a half minutes. The first of them is a cover of Daniel Johnston’s classic ‘True Love Will Find You in The End’, the lo-fi arrangement of the original, replaced with lush strings and delicate vocals. ‘Piano Song’ is reminiscent of Nico at her most melodic, whilst ‘Thinking of You’, marries gamelan clang with stately piano. The EP closes with the gorgeous drfiting vibes of ‘When The Clouds Clear’, like Steve Reich having tea with Ray Coniff.  
 
“In The End’ sees Charlie continuing his collaborations with Joe Mount AKA Metronomy who produced the EP, High Llamas member Dominic Murcott (string arrangements and vibraphone) and The Elysian Quartet (Hot Chip, Simon Fisher-Turner and Max De Wardener) who provide the lush strings.  
Charlie is currently finishing a remix for The Klaxons and working on his debut album with High Llamas’ main man (and arranger extraordinaire) Sean O`Hagan.  
A pretty music box of a track, from Charlie Alex Merch’s “After The Clouds Clear” album, that’s hard to pin down... which is no bad thing. It’s a beautiful Glockenspiel and string led instrumental that gently comes and goes in under three minutes. Delightful.”
