Caroline - Skydiving Onto The Library Roof LP (Black)

Caroline is an eight piece, based in London. Started by Jasper Llewellyn, Mike O'Malley, Casper Hughes in early 2017, initially evolving out of weekly improvisation sessions. Bringing together shared influences in, and experiences of playing, midwestern ‘emo’ guitar music, Appalachian folk, and minimalist classical, the group spent a year and a half playing privately, without a project name. Reiterating, deconstructing and re-building the same small handful of songs over and over again, the group slowly expanded their on-stage members before playing their debut show as caroline in 2018. 

Now with an ever-growing cohort, caroline’s music is like a system: a cluster of 8 or 9 interconnected parts/people, working off, and with, one another over fairly long periods of time, all trying to reach a shared goal. With a sound grounded equally in fluid, machine-like synchronizations as well as abrasive, cutting juxtapositions, caroline feel like they are trying to achieve some sort of collective joyousness. Specific song ideas which have been constantly recycled and altered over the past few years are temporarily crystallised into fixed forms for the sake of recording, before continuing to evolve.
