The Carolyn has spent the last few years crafting songs perfect for highway driving in the rain.
The upcoming release, Harmful History, is in some ways more of what one could expect from the band, but it also foreshadows where they’re headed.
Those who cut their teeth on the melodic punk bands from the late 90s and early 2000s will certainly feel at home, but might also be pleasantly surprised by the band’s choice to embrace poppy hooks and unorthodox song structures while wasting no time in the process. Look no further than the bands previous two full lengths, Rhythm of My Own Decay (59 X Records/Gunner Records) and This Will Begin To Make Things Right (59 X Records) to find songs filled with catchy choruses and lyrics about sleep deprivation, obscure pop culture references, and existential crisis.
You’ll be able to find The Carolyn on the road throughout 2023 including appearances at SXSW and return to Europe in support of Harmful History.
