Coming from the dirty end of Rock ‘n’ Roll; owning band rehearsal rooms in Leicester UK for a number of years, Caroline McLavy emerged with an electro pop album quite possibly as polar opposite to her day job as it can musically get! But as it goes ‘Electrostatic’ has plenty of hard-core grinding bass lines and provocative lyrics so maybe there’s more influence there than she cares to admit.
The 11 tracks wander around relationship issues, social anxiety, dancing like your life depends on it, facing depression, general frustration with humanity and to finalise an end track about battling with bailiffs. What’s surprising is that with a gentle vocal, catchy pop melodies and uplifting synths, you hardly even notice.
Caroline McLavy wants to tell you her story with her album. ‘Electrostatic’ just wants to be put on repeat.
