Local indie-rock band Carolines return to Clwb Ifor Bach for one last show as they say, farewell. Tickets are on sale now.
Formed in Jan 2017 Carolines are an unsigned four piece indie band based in Cardiff. Ashley Kidd (vocals & rhythm guitar), Sion Edmonds (Lead Guitar), Tyler Vaughan (Bass) and Gwaredd Jones (Drums).
The four students joined together and have performed their original material which takes influences from Stereophonics, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Arctic Monkeys all across Wales. Their debut self titled EP was released in Jan 2018 to a sell out launch party in Cardiff and has been played on BBC Introducing Wales. Adam Walton called the track (18) “A ready made classic, with anthemic catchy riffs and memorable lyrics”. Their music is available across all of the usual platforms and their Spotify account has just achieved over 80000 plays.
Two new singles “Inbetween” & “Electric” were recorded with legendary Charlie Francis and released in March 2019. Following another sell out show in Cardiff, Carolines were selected by This Feeling as one of their Big In 2019 artists. After playing their debut London showcase show with them at the beginning of that year and being a featured artist on the Fred Perry Subculture playlist they also bagged a slot at the Isle Of Wight Festival in the summer of 2019. 2020/2021 had no live music but the band released TAXI in May 2020, MONEY in July 2020, CHOOSE LIFE in Dec 2020 and are due to release ROLLERCOASTER they’re final single in Sept 2021 before the band go off on new individual adventures in 2022. Catch them for their last Cardiff performance on 21st October in Clwb Ifor Bach and at Swansea Fringe on 23rd October in The Bunkhouse.
