caroline share single and video ‘IWR’ & announce self-titled album

London-based eight piece caroline are excited to announce that their eponymous debut album, mixed by John ‘Spud’ Murphy (black midi, Lankum), will be released on Feb 25th 2022 via Rough Trade Records / Remote Control Records. Hear ‘IWR’ – a new track taken from the forthcoming album – and check out its self-directed video below.

Mike O’Malley explains the thinking behind new single ‘IWR’: “Jasper was sending a lot of home-recorded nylon guitar and singing ideas, and one just stuck because it was just a really beautiful vocal melody.  We had an initial guitar-based idea, then we decided that on a certain chord this wall of violins should come in.” They experimented with an idea of “extreme closeness,” recording the guitar as quiet as possible, with the microphone placed right next to it and the gain turned up to the maximum.
