caroline is an intriguing multi-instrumental ensemble based in London that evolved out of its eight members’ shared love of midwestern emo guitar music, Appalachian folk, minimalist classical, and various forms of dance music.
This eclectic mix began as a series of improvisation sessions organised by musicians Jasper Llewellyn, Mike O'Malley, and Casper Hughes in early 2017. Today, caroline has expanded to welcome five more multi-talented members with skills in violin, trumpet, bass, clarinet, flute, saxophone, drums, and percussion. Since then, the expansive singles Dark Blue and Skydiving onto the Library Roof and performances at End of The Road and Green Man have built them a strong cult following.
caroline’s self-titled debut album was released to critical acclaim by Rough Trade Records in February 2022.
