All the way from Norway, Ask Carol is the newest metal/punk duo you have to check out. Their debut album is set for release later this year in August. Helping build up excitement, their latest single “Mountains of Cash” brings frontwoman’s booming vocals with pounding drums and guitars setting a tone.
The duo, coming to us from Auma, self-describes their sound as grungy alt-pop or “like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with a Nordic melodic twist”. This is entirely accurate. For debut work, Ask Carol already carries a strong sense of self and confidence in their music that is reminiscent of early 90’s grunge greats.
Their first EP was released on Grappa Musikkforlag while all upcoming music is set for release on ChoVan Records, an indie label of their creation.
Their current shows have been postponed to work on the debut album with the exception of a show in September in Oslo. You can follow them on their website here.
