The Carolyn dropped the incredible Rhythm of My Own Decay last summer, a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pop-punk record that took the tempos of early Joyce Manor, the heartland punk of the Menzingers, and the self-deprecation of Spanish Love Songs and turned it all into something that felt fresh. Nearly exactly a year later they’ll be releasing a follow-up EP, the three-track Harmful History. They’ve already let fans in on a listen to their cover of The Cranberries’ classic “Salvation,” and today we’re stoked to premiere the EP’s explosive, bite-sized opener “LBB.” In less than two minutes, it shows off everything there is to love about the Atlanta three-piece. Check out the song and read a brief Q&A with singer/guitarist Andrew Patrick below.
Harmful History is out June 9th on 59x Records.
