Leeds trio Caro graced Crofters Rights half way through their UK tour with support from local rock outfit Youth.
Starting with Youth, their set included stand out tracks Breathe and Kaleidoscope, where the band are evoking where you’re submersed with loud bouts of reverb laced with melodic guitar. With Youth working on their fourth-coming EP, their live shows are gritty and demonstrate huge potential.
As the off-beat chimes of latest single ‘Lick Your Lips’ rang through, Caro exhibit how being newcomers ceases relevance with sounds well beyond their years.
The three-piece brought intricate arrangements with thrashing intervals to Crofters, where they demonstrated how their alt-pop is anthemic even the smallest of venues. Lead Adam Pardey is magnetic in performance, where united they boast endless potential.
Their catalogue so far is infectious and intriguing. Last year they broke the scene and grew in popularity nationally with tracks ‘Eyes On The Ground’ and ‘Cold Comfort’, which proved to be crowd favourites in Bristol. Although being easily relatable to indie-pop outfits Everything Everything and Alt-J, what sets Caro apart is their boundless ability to experiment yet have such a succinct, dynamic sound in a less expecting way.
Closing with ‘Closet Lunatic’, Caro truly are ones to watch this year.
