The Carrots, an Austin, Texas sextet will make you feel like you've fallen through a time warp. They brilliantly evoke the spirit of classic 60s Motown girlgroups and pop girlgroups from the late 50s. Their myspace says it all in the section 'sounds like': 60s girl groups IN LOVE!
Despite the sugarsweet pop sounds and authentic old sounding production, I don't get the feeling I'm listening to a mere gimmick. The Carrots manage to give a modern vibe to the traditional pop sound without losing sight of what makes a tune exciting and interesting.
This year they've released two four-song 7 inches on Elefant Records, first Doing Our Part and later Beverly. Both are great listens!
