caroline are new London-based septet that make swelling and atmospheric folk music. The act has been toiling away at figuring out their sound for a few years now, and after some notable live performances they have been signed by British indie bastion Rough Trade.
Today caroline have shared their debut single “Dark blue”, along with a b-side called “BRJ”. They’ve also shared a video for the slow-burning “Dark blue”, about which they say:
“We see ‘caroline’ as being ‘systems-based’ music in the way that all the musical parts are mutually interdependent and none are expendable. This video shows a city and explores how, with it’s similarly interconnected roads, tracks, tunnels and rivers, it shares something with this characteristic of our music and of this song in particular. A city’s architectural features, and the ways that they coexist with each other, became analogies for the musical parts that knot together in ‘Dark blue’.”
