CARO’s debut track ‘Admit/Resist’ is a slow-burner, in the best kind of way. Initially this first release may feel a little uninspiring, but by one minute in it’s intriguing to say the least. The lethargic beat, accompanied by a crooning vocal, gives way to a quietly fascinating riff that brings the feel up from the floor to the ceiling, and the song soon feels like it’s floating rather than sinking.
From here, the track wallows in its sound, confident the listener is hooked. The rhythm section is very reminiscent of Thom Yorke and his various side projects, scattered and disjointed while still slotting together with ease. The vocal repeats its languid line over the newly established feel, creating a dissonance between the legato voice and stilted beats. The track is all too short, it begs for a final section, something swelling and awesome to round off this otherwise remarkable debut.
CARO play Live at Leeds on 30th April, The Wardrobe at 1pm.
