Norwegian alt-rock band Ask Carol is headed to Austin, TX for SXSW next month so we thought we’d share their song Smiling All Day Long with you as an introduction to this new band and their expressive, impressive guitar mastery.
Propelled by Ask’s twangy Fender and Carol’s steady guitar groove and face-melting solos, Ask Carol (get it?) formed in late 2014 during a road trip across America. The duo’s long-time friendship and mutual admiration of guitar God Jimi Hendrix, mixed with Ask’s passion for Wilco and The Clash and Carol’s love for Lauryn Hill and Robert Plant, creates a malleable sound that supersedes genre labels.
Ask Carol is one of those bands you hear and just know are a great live band, so we look forward to hearing them in person at SXSW. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube from March 13-19, 2017 to catch the best Nordic music in Austin, TX.
