Carla | Heart Trips

With music so accessible nowadays, recording has never been easier. I guess, whilst mainly that's a good thing, the amount of sub-par quality being produced is sadly unavoidable. If anything though it makes bands wishing to break through work that extra bit harder in order to edge from the pack. Liverpool's Carla do just so in their debut Heart Trips. Already sounding fully formed with their engaging melodic guitar patterns and riffling basslines the fresh faced quartet excel in all the right places. As the track's chugging intro breaks away we get a taste of their more soulful side as their sun-kissed rhythms echo amongst the tracks funky percussion and voracious vocals. With musical influences ranging from Jamie xx, New Order and the Smiths to Jimi Hendrix, as well as a lot of modern electronica from the likes of James Blake and Crystal Fighters it's safe to say this is just the start to an exciting adventure for the band, one of which I can't wait to be a part of. Take a listen to 'Heart Trips' above now.
