“If you do not love The Carvels NYC, you do not love Rock n Roll!” (Rich Quinlan, Jersey Beat)
“The Carvels NYC crank out a brand of rock & roll that’s equal parts punk, garage rock and girl-group pop” (Falling James Moreland, LA Weekly)
Influenced by NYC original punk (Blondie, Ramones, Heartbreakers), 60s girl groups (The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las), with a drop of Lou Reed & The VelvetUnderground’s deadpan cool–The Carvels NYC bring sticky tuneful rock and roll with powerful unique vocals, rollicking Thunders-style guitar licks and wailing sax.
“The Carvels NYC write songs steeped in NYC attitude. They are a driving rock and roll outfit with swagger and grit.” (Modern Music Maker)
The Carvels NYC signed to Die Laughing Records in 2019 and released two singles-the sexy, swinging “Late Night Heart” and “Santa Had to Get a Day Job”.
A high-energy, punk rock Christmas romp. “Late Night Heart” is the title track of a 3-song vinyl EP, scheduled for release in February / March 2020.
Stay tuned, there’s a lot more to come from The Carvels NYC!
