Taylah Carroll reveals woozy new single ‘Sometimes Good People Do Bad Things’ and hometown single launch this November
Recorded alongside producer Tim Harvey (Lisa Mitchell, Gena Rose Bruce, Jade Imagine), ‘Sometimes Good People Do Bad Things’ is a song about getting older and learning to forgive, driving a strong force that aptly represents the multi-faceted nature of Carroll’s artistic character. A beckoning bass line lays a slick grounding for Carroll’s rich vocals to ebb and flow upon, before swiftly making way for an uprising of riff-centric choruses and momentous percussion, akin to the likes of Olympia or Julia Jacklin. The track’s nuanced complexities shift from deep introspection to acute observation and beyond, highlighting Carroll’s renewed perspective on past experiences and interactions.
“Sometimes Good People Do Bad Things is a song about getting older and learning to forgive people… and myself. It was born out of the realisation that people are often at the mercy of their own fears and complicated histories – That often, everyone is doing the best they can, even when they fuck up. The song shifts through perspectives a little bit – which is a diplomatic move my myself, but also kinda shows how confusing the process of empathising with someone who did wrong by you can be. Tim, my band and I had so much fun in the studio finding ways to really carry the sentiment across. I got to scream into the strings of a piano in the studio, hit a little standing fan with a drumstick… it was really fun to create.” – Taylah Carroll
Off the back of a hugely successful debut single launch to a bursting crowd upstairs at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel, and a nation-wide tour supporting Harrison Storm, 2019 has already projected big things for Taylah Carroll. Not afraid to lay it all on the table, the endearing performer is thrilled to be playing a handful of Festival and support shows over the coming months, plus a special hometown single launch to welcome ‘Sometimes Good People Do Bad Things’ to the world.
