| The sound created by Carina and her band is an intriguing mixture, as the track 'Lacuna' signifies, featuring a slow piano lead introduction before things take off a cacophony of noise created by crisp guitars and percussion, and then slowing down again. It is a bumpy ride in which Carina's terse and dark lyrics really hit home as you sense the anger rising to the surface: |
"You're just looking for an excuse to call yourself a f**ker, look at her without the burden of what it is that you live for. She'll still be here when you carnival is over."
The impact of the aforementioned angry tune is softened in the following track 'Paris', which conveys the message that there are beautiful things and people in the world. This album explores a range of topics and emotions in a heartfelt manner. Having toured with the likes of Coldplay and David Gray this young Wolverhampton wordsmith has won many fans already, a trend which this latest offering is ensured to continue.
