Carousel Re-brand & New Music

Updated: May 1


Hello! We hope that everyone is doing well in such strange times. For those who don't know us as In Earnest, we used to be 'Carousel' (the reason you are receiving this e-mail - see footer to unsubscribe). We started our re-brand in February 2019 due to the fact that we felt that our new line-up and musical direction deserved it's own identity: "In Earnest is fuelled by the dual songwriting of couple Sarah and Thomas in their bid to encourage open and honest conversation around mental health. Their storytelling is a personal dialogue from two perspectives; a call from one who feels too much and a response from the other who must plead for them to stay alive. Hailing from Southend-on-Sea, In Earnest is made a trio by the inclusion of Toby, who enhances the pair’s songs with thoughtful decoration and numerous instruments. Their forthcoming debut EP was devised by whittling 30+ song ideas down to just 6 tracks, in which they explore themes of hope vs hopelessness, desperation, loneliness and identity in their rawest form. With influences ranging from alt-rock to folk and black metal, In Earnest propel forward with their own brand of genre-bending indie." Our debut single, 'Put Me Under' is out TODAY (Friday 17th April) on all platforms and streaming services; we'd love for you to check it out here: We're hosting a LIVE STREAM LAUNCH PARTY tonight on both our Facebook and Instagram pages.

We hope you'll enjoy following us on our new journey and we hope to see you at a show soon! Much love, Tom, Sarah & Toby
