caroline: early show
Institute of Contemporary Arts

caroline is an eight piece, based in London. Started by Jasper Llewellyn, Mike O'Malley, Casper Hughes in early 2017, caroline initially evolved out of weekly improvisation sessions. Bringing together shared influences in, and experiences of playing, midwestern ‘emo’ guitar music, Appalachian folk, minimalist classical and various forms of dance music. caroline now includes Oliver Hamilton (violin), Magdalena McLean (violin), Freddy Wordsworth (trumpet, bass), Alex McKenzie (clarinet, flute, saxophone), Hugh Aynsley (drums, percussion), alongside the three original members. 

The group spent a year and a half playing privately, without a project name. Reiterating, deconstructing and re-building the same small handful of songs over and over again, the group slowly expanded their on-stage members before playing their debut show as caroline in 2018. Expansive singles ‘Dark blue’ and ‘Skydiving onto the library roof’, as well as performances at End of The Road, Green Man and supporting the Microphones, have built them a strong cult following. caroline’s self-titled debut album was released by Rough Trade Records in Feb 2022, gaining critical acclaim from Pitchfork to the Observer.

At these intimate in-the-round shows they will perform a set of new music, ahead of recording their next album.
