TUNE Charlotte Carpenter - Lately
Charlotte Carpenter releases new EP ‘Shelter’ via her own Let It Go Records on 20th October.
Lead track ‘Shelter’ is dynamic in its scope and vision as one of Charlotte’s best creations yet. “I began writing this song at a service station last year on tour,” she explains. “As I drove in I could see these huge, beautiful trees towering over me and in that moment the word ‘Shelter’ came to me.”
“When we started the recording process we wanted to make it as cinematic as possible. I wanted it to feel intense, desperate and to give a sense of yearning.”
‘Shelter’ is coupled with ‘Hey Mr Cowboy’, a tremolo shimmering breathy moment of pure blues angst that seeps straight into the listener’s heart. ‘Fire’ and ‘Lately’ complete the EP and will be released on 10” vinyl for the very first time.
Charlotte will tour the UK this Autumn: Oct: The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham (23rd), Open Norwich (24th), The Star Inn Guildford (25th) Record Junkee Sheffield (26th), The Cookie Leicester (27th), Surf Café Tynemouth (29th) Nov: St Pancras Old Church London (1st).
