    Following the 2017 debut single ‘Invisible Lines’ – which Steve Lamacq labelled “entrancing” on BBC 6Music, and Tom Robinson called a “three-and-a-half-minute epic” on the same station – came the 2018 Carousel Clouds debut long-player Tales of Coincidence, an album recorded with three bassists, and yet without a note of bass played throughout the record…

    On ‘Grace (Look No Further)’, the Salford band echo the lyrical theme in the music, changing moods sweeping through its near-200 seconds, their signature haunting shoegaze-psych sound intact.

    Grace (Look No Further)

    “We’re proud of the whole record, but from a songwriting perspective I am personally pleased that, on Grace, we tried to match the lyrics to the music in a way I haven’t done before, to the extent that an actual heartbeat is used for they rhythm at one stage. Hopefully, the subject matter dovetails perfectly with the sounds we are making, changing moods accordingly, including repetition, monotony, hope and euphoria. We think it does, anyway! Similar to The Torment, it is almost like two songs bolted together, with multiple time signatures and no traditional chorus – obviously, this is the next single…!”
    Thoughts on Grace (Look No Further), which Neil discussed with Even The Stars.

    Blood Red Sky (Marlon Brando Mix)

    “Way before Carousel Clouds existed, Ben asked me to add a vocal line to a piece he had written. He had the title, but no lyrics or melody, and emailed me the track. It sounded great as an instrumental, an ambient electronica.”
    Neil discussing the origins of Blood Red Sky with Even The Stars. The version now available with this single is one of those early compositions of the track.
