Carousel Re-brand & New Music

Updated: May 1, 2020


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
