about

Carroll's a really talented vocalist with an impressive range and honest delivery. This is the opening song from his new EP - a 5 tracker worth a listen if you're a fan of acts like Patrick Watson and The Panics.

Rave review: Luke Sutton

Timothy Carroll isn’t an artist I am unfamiliar with. His song Something Else often featured in playlists on my iPod, and is always a pleasure to listen to. With his latest EP, The Deepest Dive, Carroll begins a sombre journey through folk music, whilst engaging the listener with his unique style and choice of instruments.
Opening track This Counting Life is a slow building piece, which keeps the same slow folk pace while showing Carroll’s talents as a solo vocalist. Key song Sense of the East reminds me of Death Cab For Cutie. Not in terms of musical style, more that Carroll’s voice resembles Ben Gibbard from the popular indie band. Lyrically, it’s clear that Carroll takes the time to really think his songs out. No quick scribbles of lyrics here, everything is planned out perfectly. Carroll’s voice soars high here, in what can be considered a highlight of the EP. Title track The Deepest Dive features the backing vocals of Helen Franzmann, who assists Carroll with this poppy song. At 2:59 in length, it’s the shortest track on the EP, but in no way a disappointment. Always There, Always Here is slightly underwhelming, but this is made up for with closing track The Hunted. With acoustic guitar in hand, Carroll closes the EP with soaring vocals, sombre melodies and no doubt, a smile on his face. It surely left me with one.

At just under twenty minutes long, Timothy Carroll’s EP, The Deepest Dive is an impressive follow up EP from an artist who will surely be making the rounds on the local music scene in the near future.

It’s rare to listen to a release from an artist and feel completely drawn in by all the elements of the song. Carroll’s song writing skills, voice, style and overall performance equals a recipe of perfect folk music that will leave his listeners craving for more.
Special mention must be made Candice Faye Scanlan, whose beautiful EP artwork features on the cover.

about

Timothy Carroll Brisbane, Australia

Carroll is currently in the studio working with increasingly reclusive producer Matt Redlich (Hungry Kids Of Hungary, Ball Park Music) pushing towards a heavier pallet of electric tones. The record is influenced by the dueling guitar lines of Neil Young and driving melodies of acts such as The Cure and the Smiths. Set for release later this year. ... more
