London-based eight piece caroline have announced the release of their self-titled debut album, which will be out on February 25, 2022 via Rough Trade. The group has also shared a video for a new song from the album, “IWR.” View the self-directed video below, along with the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Caroline’s lineup doesn’t include anyone named Caroline, but it does feature Jasper Llewellyn (acoustic guitar, cello, drums, vocals), Mike O’Malley (electric guitar, vocals), Casper Hughes (electric guitar, vocals), Oliver Hamilton (violin), Magdalena McLean (violin), Freddy Wordsworth (trumpet, bass), Alex McKenzie (clarinet, flute, saxophone), and Hugh Aynsley (drums, percussion). The band might appeal to fans of Grizzly Bear, The Microphones, Young Jesus, and Fleet Foxes.

O’Malley had this to say about “IWR” in a press release: “Jasper was sending a lot of home-recorded nylon guitar and singing ideas, and one just stuck because it was just a really beautiful vocal melody. We had an initial guitar-based idea, then we decided that on a certain chord this wall of violins should come in.”

Previously shared tracks from the upcoming album are “Dark blue” and “Skydiving onto the library roof.”
