Formed in Jan 2017 Carolines are an unsigned four piece indie band based in Cardiff. Ashley Kidd (vocals & rhythm guitar), Sion Michael Kendall (Lead Guitar), Tyler Vaughan (Bass) and Gwaredd Jones (Drums).
The four students joined together and have performed their original material which takes influences from Stereophonics, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Arctic Monkeys all across Wales. Their debut self titled EP was released in Jan 2018 to a sell out launch party in Cardiff and has been played on BBC Introducing Wales. Adam Walton called the track (18) "A ready made classic, with anthemic catchy riffs and memorable lyrics”. Their music is available across all of the usual platforms and their Spotify account has just achieved over 50000 plays.
Two new singles "Inbetween" & "Electric" were recorded with legendary Charlie Francis and released in March 2019. Following another sell out show in Cardiff, Carolines were selected by This Feeling as one of their Big In 2019 artists. After playing their debut London showcase show with them at the beginning of that year and being a featured artist on the Fred Perry Subculture playlist they also bagged a slot at the Isle Of Wight Festival in the summer.
2020 is set to be even bigger with four new singles due to be released through the year. They have a variety of gigs and festivals booked for the rest of the year. Check out our gig listings for a gig near you !!!!!
