Daily Discovery #37: CAROLINE
A folk track with immense attitude. This release by CAROLINE will give you the drive you need to get on with your day.
An electric guitar delives a catchy hook. The drum strikes in teasing the energy about to build in the track. The pacey violin brings folk to the forefront. And when the raw vocals come in, it’s delivered the full package. It’s the kind of track that gives the kick up the arse you need to keep ticking off your to do list. You can’t help but take in the energy it emanates.
It’s rowdy and riotous bursting from it’s neatly packaged folk backing. Paired with raw vocals, its hard not to liken the track to Frank Turner. A pretty awesome act to be associated with in our eyes!
CAROLINE are a five piece from Manchester. Brothers Joe and Alfie Prior take care of the vocals and guitar with Victoria Farrel-Reed on the violin, Jacob Saunders on bass and Joseph Station on drums. It’s their debut under the name of CAROLINE. Prior to this, according to the brilliant Little Indie Blogs whom we owe today’s daily discovery to, the Prior brothers went by the name Violet Society.
Towards the end of 2015 they introduced ‘Nonsense’. With the pacey drums it evokes almost the same amount of energy but the band have since stepped up a notch introducing harsher vocals and more transitions in Pretty Corpse.
