NEARLY three years on from the release of acclaimed album ‘Weirdo’, Carla J Easton has returned to solo duties with a brand-new single called ‘One Week’.
Following on from her recent work with Poster Paints, Easton has also announce a new album ‘SUGAR HONEY’ which lands in October.
‘One Week’ is the perfect introduction – living up to the album’s title with shimmering synths, bubblegum pop melodies and those distinctively honey sweet vocals. With layers of chiming Roland synths, classic pop hooks and that classic Korg M1, it’s elevated even further by the euphoric saxophone solo. An inspired return, it’s sure to capture fans old and new.
Created after building her own home studio during the pandemic, and taking part in a digital writing residency, she says of the track: “One Week was recorded live off the floor at MacArts (Galashiels) and engineered by longtime collaborator Stephen Watkins. It’s produced by my drummer Calum Muir and I co-mixed it with Ronan Breslin at La Chunky Studio (Glasgow). What’s been so exciting about creating my latest work is that it’s the first time me and my live band have produced all the tracks”
Carla adds: “I’m really interested in the way we recall memories and use days of the week as markers for remembering previous events. ‘I must have went for dinner on Tuesday because on Monday night I was out with a friend’ etc. So that idea was the starting point for the story of a relationship unravelling fast.”
