Scotland is home to an assortment of excellent Americana acts, and Perthshire group The Carloways are no different, proven by their self-titled debut EP.
Crawlin’ Back is a very nice way to start, as it sticks in the head, not to mention the added harmonicas are fantastic. One More Night has plenty of energy in the verses, while bringing it down for a milder chorus.
Hold Me Up has a warm, acoustic-driven first half, but gradually the band ease into an enticing and catchier second half, before going all out for No Sympathy, loaded with staggering pianos and exhilarating guitars.
A really fun record with enough variety between the tunes to keep it spicy and warrant multiple listens.
