Daily Tune

— 21/10/2021

The music by the beloved Austrian duo Cari Cari has always had that cinematic summer evening on a country road vibe. Now, ahead of the northern hemisphere winter – they release Around The Bend – a long slow goodbye to summer. The single has a warm and fuzzy retro mood, something between psychedelic pop and indie rock. The hazy vocals by Stephanie and Alex’ playful guitar tune convey an almost painful nostalgia for warmer days. What would be the perfect song to drive off into a movie-worthy sunset (don’t forget to check out our movie-related 2019 feature with the duo), instead warms us in the colder season. And the timeless track will definitely stay with us to be listened to when the weather warms up again. Cari Cari’s sound evokes memories – like a musical photograph and Around The Bend is the soundtrack to the four-minute short film with the listener as the protagonist.

Having just released his eighth studio album with Strand Of Oaks, frontman Tim Showalter felt it too difficult a task pinning down his love for just one specific record and instead decided to muse on the world-building virtue several albums have for him – and pleads a strong case for appreciating albums as a whole.
