Bringing her best bubblegum pop voice and smashing it against huge rock anthems with some poppy tropes, Carla J Easton is going to be one of those artists you’ll return back to time and again. Carla’s level of energy is infectious and she reminds me of the similarly voiced and energetically toned Charly Bliss. Carla J Easton wrote her new album whilst sofa surfing with friends in Scotland and is a marked shift from her debut album ‘Impossible Stuff’. That album was nominated for the SAY awards (Scottish album of the year) which is where I’d previously seen other awesome artists like C Duncan and Kathryn Joseph. The SAY team do their work. Whereas that album was more dream pop cabaret, this new album is much more defiant and rocky. Crunchy synths and guitars smash against bold brass arrangements and Carla’s distinctive voice.
The title track from the upcoming album is called ‘Weirdo’ and features Honeyblood. It is a great tour-de-force on what you’ll be expecting on the new album and is a riot to play loud. The album comes out on the 28th of August and you can pre-order it on Bandcamp. Enjoy the single below.
