Winners of LCM favourite new band in 2017 and LCM 'EP of the Year'
Carousel’s highly anticipated debut EP was released on 22nd September 2017. The 4-piece Indie-Americana music collective are based in Southend-on-Sea on the coast of Essex, UK. Carousel fuse Americana, country, folk, rock’n’roll, blues and roots music into their own unique approach whilst taking full advantage of having 4 accomplished vocalists at their disposal. The band’s influences include an array of artists from Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash to the modern day Americana stylings of Brandi Carlile and The Lone Bellow. The band’s aim is to breathe new life into music venues and street-level performances around the UK, with a view to remove the barrier between artist and audience.
Carousel was founded in the summer of 2015, following the decision that four good friends and solo musicians would come together, with the ideology that they are better together than they are apart. Music is as much a part of one band member as the next and it is something that is a constant staple in each of their lives. Sharing a musical vision that is encompassed by friendship and honesty, Carousel present a fresh take on passionate and heartfelt music. Their songs are both uplifting and sombre. Wistful yet forward-looking.
Two years in the making, Carousel have finally released their debut EP, which includes five of their most energising and emotive songs. They performed on a number of festival bills in summer 2017; most notably Leigh Folk Festival, Live Expressions Festival, Daxtonbury Festival and are becoming increasingly sought after within the UK’s live music scene.
