‘Paperback Lover” MP3 Drops w/ Refinery 29 Today! With Guitars suggest you catch her LIVE @ NYC Album Release Show 9/6: Brooklyn, NY @ La Sala, 9pm
Australian folk-rock chanteuse Karlie Bruce has already made a splash in the US and abroad. With a background that is as dynamic as her work, she is a back-up singer for NYC’s 17-piece disco band Escort, has opened for renowned pianist Brad Mehldau and graced the stage of New York’s esteemed Carnegie Hall alongside jazz luminaries Matt Wilson and Larry Goldings. Karlie is preparing to release her debut LP, Paperback Lover, a soul-stirring journey of love and loss, on September 4th.
Paperback Lover opens with the title track wrapped in dusky, vibrato guitar notes and the splash and roll of half-timed drums looking back on a relationship gone awry. In noir style, “Neon Lights” is a melancholic song that builds to a dramatic climax of plucked guitars and lush string arrangements. “The Tulip” weaves an unsettling tale of love, future, and the unknown, set to a country lullaby guitar riff and drawling drums. Download "Paperback Lover" where it premiered with Refinery 29 today.
Karlie Bruce will premiere Paperback Lover LIVE with an intimate performance September 6th @ La Sala, joined by Chris Parrello on guitar (Things I Wonder), Brian Chase on drums (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Hagar Ben-Ari on bass (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings). If you’re in NYC, don’t miss the band’s compelling live show!
