Based out of the Norwegian mountain community Auma, comes the grungy alt-rock duo Ask Carol. Two guitars, drums, a synth, a drum machine, and a unique splitting system for Carol’s guitar, makes this two-piece sound like a full band. Their sound can be fierce and mean, then suddenly turn soft and comforting. Their sound could make you think of artists like the Kills, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, with a Nordic, melancholic twist.
With a dark irony and subtle humour, this new alternative rock tune, pokes fun at the elite few, those with unimaginable wealth, who sits on ‘Mountains Of Cash’. Ask Carol’s new song comes with a lot of energy and punk attitude. Trombones and delayed space guitars make for a cinematic backdrop, while a mean fuzzy guitar and punchy drums hits you in the face. All in contrast to the intimate vocals. This is Ask Carol’s third single from their upcoming debut album slated for release later this summer.
