Marking the quartet’s first new material in 2023, following the release of the thunderous fire witnessed on their 2022 single Marigold, Carousel once again flexes the group’s work alongside collaborator Luke Palmer, of Dead Letter Circus and prominent production fame.
With engineering also by Palmer and mastering from Studio 301’s Leon Zervos, Carousel mixes lilting melodics with moments of razor-sharp riffs, modern hues and polished vocals from lyricist Stephen Gibb. Speaking about the new track upon its release, Gibb elaborates:“It’s about the current trend of negativity in the news cycles. It’s about the doom scrolling addiction that we all wake with every day when the first thing we do is reach for our phones. Carousel explores the damage we’re all subjected to by the direct targeting of how we’re told to feel, think, and act through the constant bombardment of infotainment and opinions in our every day.”
The walls continue to tear down, and These Four Walls are still undeniably ones to watch in the Aussie rock‘n’roll landscape.
With its futuristic underlying soundscapes meshed with the group’s previously established hard rock, Carousel is an earworm extremely likely to tickle on a large scale in a live setting, and signals significantly to large things still to come from the band as they further venture into their latest creative chapter. The walls continue to tear down, and These Four Walls are still undeniably ones to watch in the Aussie rock‘n’roll landscape. Grab a ride on the Carousel in the meantime with this ardent new anthem.
