The Carpels are a Birmingham-based band who sound a bit like a collision between Foals and Los Campesinos! with an extra helping of raw sounding vocals. This is by no means a bad thing. Their new single, 'Bears', is no different. It’s full of frantic, foot-tapping rhythms, and lead vocalist Dylan Williams shouting about “bears, hoodies on the loose” adds an edgy, interesting twist to their sound. It’s available on the 8th January, and is definitely worth a listen.
