New Music: Carpark

Carpark are a relatively new face within the UK indie-rock scene, having been born out of the recent lockdown. Their sound feels refreshingly confident and bold, while also maintaining a sense of nostalgia that adds a dose of charm to their songs.

The three-piece outfit have spent the past year writing about everything that hurts and frustrates them, from love and climate grief, to missing the taste of warm beers on tour.

Countdown From Ten’ explores the psychological effects of climate change and deals with the band’s own experience with climate grief.

“It often feels as though all the problems in the world are created by humans, climate change and Covid have been the themes for the last year while we’ve been writing. ‘Countdown From Ten’ is the result of us contemplating this and casually daydreaming about human extinction” – Scottie, Carpark
