Carolina Liar release their debut album ‘Coming To Terms’ on September 21, the album is preceded by single ‘I’m Not Over’ on September 7. ‘I’m Not Over’ is the follow up to radio favourite ‘Show Me What I’m Looking For’ (Radio 1 A list, XFM, Capital, Absolute), which was released in June. The band have also confirmed a string of UK dates which include a show at London’s Hoxton’s Bar And Grill on August 20. Having wowed festival crowds at T in The Park, Oxygen and Wakefest the band are also set to perform at V festival.
A chance meeting in Sweden between Max Martin and Chad Wolfe, the band’s singer and songwriter, kick-started the process of Coming To Terms becoming the record it was always destined to be. Living in his car in Los Angeles and struggling to make ends meet, Chad was invited out to Stockholm for the summer by a friend – an offer he eagerly accepted. It was on this sojourn that he met Max Martin – a meeting that would end with Martin hearing (and loving) Chad’s songs. So impressed was Martin that he immediately passed a copy of Chad’s demos to a friend at Atlantic Records, and things finally began to take shape.
If there’s anyone with an ear for pop perfection, it’s Max Martin – having penned and produced the million-selling hits that launched the careers of Pink, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson (to name a few), he’s arguably the most important songwriter and producer in contemporary pop music today. Immediately recognising the indelibly addictive and instant familiarity of Carolina Liar’s early demos, he quickly jumped on board and assumed production duties.
The result is Coming To Terms - a ridiculously accomplished debut, filled with hit singles. As Martin’s phenomenal 17 year career clearly proves, the sound and face of music may change infinitely year-on-year, but the beauty of a pop hook never goes out of fashion. Coming To Terms is set to be one of the most unforgettable modern rock albums of this year.
