‘Lovers’ – new single and announcing the debut album from Carw

Crystalline guitars, persistent bleeps and ethereal vocals dapple the second single from elusive, Cardiff-based singer songwriter…

A second dose of 80s electro-inspired, shimmering pop from Welsh singer-songwriter, Carw arrives in the form of Lovers, his latest single to be released on August 10th on Blinc Records. Accruing radio support for his debut spring time release, Lanterns, from BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio Wales, the lone Cardiff-based artist picked up comparisons to both early Depeche Mode and Cocteau Twins.

Carw, Welsh for ‘deer’, opens the door on a determinedly focused, self-initiated and largely self-produced project influenced by classic electronic pop, the symphonic guitars of Robin Guthrie and Durruti Column and sun-setting Balearic House. Charming introspection and acutely disciplined melody marries waves of airy instrumentation and shrouded vocals, perfecting a style of sun-flecked electronica that sets nature’s beauty alongside the dark nights and bright lights of the big city.

Lovers is taken from the debut Carw album. Blinc Records are proud to announce that the album is entitled Skin Shed, and will be released on October 12th.
