CARSICK are a band formed over pints in a small English pub in late 2021. Stylistically, they take influence from a range of different artists and genres – from indie rock to post-punk to hip-hop with electronic elements – but their tongue-in-cheek lyrical approach directly tackles the trials and tribulations of life as a young adult, and especially the drinking culture which dominates the band’s demographic. Their energetic and unpredictable live shows match that theme: this is music about living for the weekend; about the desperate chaos of small-town nightlife and about forgetting what happened last night. After dropping three high-energy singles in 2022 and amassing an ever-growing cult following, the band are now signed to the legendary Alcopop! Records and are set to release their debut EP 'Drunk Hymns' on 30th June 2023.
