ASK CAROL RELEASES “Shining Bright” ROCK TRACK
Ask Carol’s third self-released single, a guitar-driven alt-pop tune built around a laid back beat, with a kind of mystic but chill and almost cinematic vibe with vocals that are so addictive listeners will break the repeat button.
Ask Carol formed in Norway in 2016 by front woman Karoline (aka Carol) and Ask. In spite of the bands short life, they have already toured internationally, having played in USA (two times at SXSW), Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Sweden and Denmark. In fall 2018 they did their first support-tour, playing support for The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Magna Carta Cartel, Anna Burch and more. Musically Ask Carol challenge the traditional conception of what a duo can be. With front woman Carol’s distinctive, dynamic range and badass vocals, this two-piece creates a wall of sound. With their guitars, drums and fuzz-synth, Ask Carol are a multitasking band, not afraid of pushing musical boundaries. Ask Carol’s music could make you think of bands like The Kills, Sonic Youth, The XX, and even K.Flay or Lana del Rey, but with darker grungy, nordic sound. You could call the genre nordic grungy alt-pop.
Following on from Ask Carol’s debut EP and the single Smiling All Day Long, the band are currently working on their debut full length album slated for release early 2020 with the first single from the album, “Come Closer” being a taste of things to come.
