‘WHERE YOU YOU WANNA GO?’ EP
LISTEN ON SPOTIFY HERE:
Bristol-based trio New Carnival’s debut EP ‘Where Do You Wanna Go?’ is released today, and now available to stream in full on Spotify and purchase on iTunes!
The EP was recorded and produced by the band in their home-made bedroom studio, set-up with a little help from Grammy Award-winning producer Hugh Padgham (Phil Collins, XTC, The Police), who came onboard after meeting Max’s Mother while buying kitchen knives (obviously!). It blends catch guitar riffs and grooving baselines with a balance of sultry lyrics and a carefree attitude.
The lead track from the EP is the huge banger ‘Where Do You Wanna Go?’, the title track of the set. The video was a lesson in how to make a really bloody cool video on a shoe-string, check it here
It was a perfect introduction into the home-spun magic of New Carnival.
Now, with their EP released, New Carnival unleash two new tracks, ‘Like I Do’ and ‘End Song’. “Like I Do” is the darker, more hip-hop influenced brother of the first single. It shows the band in another light, the brooding more restless groove underpins this lyrically contemplative track, yet those captivating hooks still remain. “End Song”, meanwhile, is all wrapped up in under 3 minutes – fitting for a track that was written and recorded in the same day. Combining the melancholic with a sardonic sense of humour, the track culminates in a euphoric finale to this EP.
