Don't Let It Die - Carousel
One of the fast rising young bands in UK Americana and our LCM 'Favourite New Artist 2017' are the great Southend based band Carousel. We are thrilled that they are headlining our next LCM gig at the Green Note in Camden on the 26th September as part of their UK tour. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is their latest single the very catchy and rockin' 'Don't Let It Die' recently released on the 27th July via Longcroft Recording. Catch them if you can.
Carousel are a 4-piece Indie Americana music collective, based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Fusing influences from the worlds of americana, country, folk, rock’n’roll and roots music, their influences range from Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Johnny Cash to the modern day Americana stylings of Nathaniel Rateliff, Phoebe Bridgers and The Lone Bellow.
Talking about the new single, the band explain "‘Don’t Let It Die’ was written as an open letter to creative minds. Within the lyrics, we wanted to encapsulate the feeling of being inspired but misunderstood, as many of us artists are. Equally, we felt the need to reiterate how important art is to society. It is so crucial that art plays its part in people’s lives in times of political and social struggle, that they welcome it in and find some respite within.”
Following appearances this summer at Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days Festival and Black Deer Festival, Carousel will be playing their heartfelt, engaging music on an 8 date headline UK tour in September / October:
