Portland-based husband and wife rock duo Charles and Kaylie Caswell, known as Berried Alive, have released their sixth studio album Our Own Light. The album – which has already cleared 2 million collective streams from singles – highlights the band’s ability to blur the lines of the genre by melding together EDM, rock, metal, and vivid pop textures and hope of normalizing difficult conversations by tackling the complexities of mental health through their music.
It aims to emphasize the importance of mental health and destigmatize honest conversations surrounding the topic, reassuring anyone struggling that they are not alone. Speaking on their growth, Charles said, “with each album, I become more genuine, authentic to myself, which involves an incredible amount of vulnerability and looking inward. The personal growth of learning to love and accept who I am has empowered me to continue exploring new sounds and ideas.”
Publications including Clash, Wonderland, Loudwire, Blabbermouth, The PRP, Ultimate Classic Rock, The Big Takeover, New Noise Magazine, and The Big Takeover, have signed on to champion the band’s new release alongside champions Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe and Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine. At the same time, Lil’ Pump was recently spotlighted sporting the band’s Parasite Collection from the Berried Alive clothing brand and streetwear line, created and designed by Kaylie, the band’s bassist.
