A journey of warm and mellow melodies, through atmospheric soundscapes, with bursts of explosive energy and heavy riffs. With Carol's characteristic vocals, two guitars in front, and a DIY attitude, the duo Ask Carol from Norway create a wall of sound, with only their guitars and bass effects and drum effects. Fascinated by all sorts of music, from jazz to hard rock, they're not afraid of blending it all together to make that one great song. Their music can be gentle and low-key, then suddenly hit you in the face with brutal power. Still they have a solid foundation in pop/rock.
Started in 2016, they are currently working on their debut album, with one more single and an EP scheduled for this spring, before the full album in late 2018. They have already toured internationally (South Korea, Philippines, Japan), and just like in their music, they like to be adventurous in real life too.
So, what's next? Don't ask me, Ask Carol!
