Ask Carol has released their new single titled ‘Quiet One’. Angst mixed with harmony and topped with originality, Ask Carol shine their brightest whenever given the chance. A small band with a big sound. That sound comes from the music itself.
A beautiful darkly chime-esque guitar flows over a haunting yet earnest vocal line accompanied by a backbeat that barely fills yet totally fits. This is how music is supposed to be. Be big by playing very little. Let it build to a crescendo, then send your listener away wanting more.

“Ever had the feeling that nobody understands you? That people think they know you, but they really don’t? Like the outsider in the school yard, misunderstood and insecure. The Quiet One…? Maybe even with a secret crush you dare not tell. With a haunting, melancholic vibe and a catchy melody, this cinematic, guitar filled, unconventional love song, is a mix of dark alternative pop and dreamy indie rock. Carol’s intimate, yet dynamic vocals, draw you in. It’s almost like Lana Del Rey meets a garage-ier Twenty One Pilots.”Ask Carol
About Ask Carol
Based out of the Norwegian mountain community Auma, comes the grungy alt-pop duo Ask Carol. Ask Carol is a high energy power-duo with a big sound. Multitasking is their middle name. Two guitars, drums, a synth, a drum machine and a unique splitting system for Carol’s guitar, makes this two-piece sound like a full band. Their sound can be fierce and mean, then suddenly turn soft and comforting.
Their sound could make you think of artists like the Kills, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, with a Nordic, melancholic twist. Ask Carol has toured in the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Scandinavia, SXSW two times, and supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
