Today’s New Track | Carroll’s “Bad Water”

Dreamy psychedelic pop band Carroll.

Carroll personifies the cool and calculated side of Twin Cities music, a real up-and-comer in all senses. Crowned as Minnesota’s Best New Band by both of the state’s largest publications – City Pages and Vita.mn –  the four man band erupted from the halls of Macalaster College with immediate recognition. Undeterred by their six-song catalog, Carroll began taking show after show while composing new material just to fill out their set time – all until joining forces recently with Jon Low, a producer whose worked with big dogs like Kurt Vile, The National, The War on Drugs and plenty more. Together they have engineered the band’s first full-length album appropriately titled Carroll expected later this summer.

“Bad Water” is their premiere release in efforts to hype their forthcoming LP, a song best described by a quote drummer Charlie Rudoy gave the Minnesota Daily: “We wanted to be My Bloody Valentine, but we couldn’t help making pop songs.” The syrupy guitar tones of “Bad Water” gelatinize coolly with its synth and vocal pairings, giving Carroll a sleek, refined sound that will likely attract new audiences with every additional radio station who features them. I heavily suggest you give it a listen before all your friends eventually ask “have you ever heard of this band Carroll before?”
