Introducing KAROBELA (pronounced ka-ro-bella), the Alt-Indie four-piece whose genre-blending approach captivates the masses and keeps you dancing on your toes. Whether you crave precision playing, soaring melodies, heavy riffing, or infectious low-end grooves inspired by dance musics drum and bass lines, KAROBELA has got you covered. It’s a feel-good experience, and it’s undeniably powerful.
FEATURED ON THE BBC INTRODUCING LIVE LOUNGE and airplay on stations like PLANET ROCK sets the stage for something truly special, and Karobela are determined to deliver. Their unmissable live show is a must-see.
KAROBELA stride boldly into new territory with their BRAND-NEW single RED LIGHT GREEN LIGHT, a deliberate attempt to combine the lyrical character study that is fast become synonymous with the band, with a musical direction that is equally and immediately no-nonsense and relatable.
RED LIGHT GREEN LIGHT paints the foundation of a story we can all relate to - that night to end all nights, where the possibilities are limitless, and anything goes. It’s a freedom that’s euphoric and liberating, but frightening and uncertain in equal measures: a journey into the uncharted that precariously balances the difference between excitement and serious danger on a razors edge.
RED LIGHT GREEN LIGHT by KAROBELA is OUT NOW and marks the beginning of a new era for the band.
“Writing about a subject you’ve experienced yourself without question always produces the most sincere and authentic lyrics. Sometimes we like to write about deeper issues, topics that are bit more cerebral. Other times, like with Red Light Green Light, it begins with something that at first seems only skin deep, but when you sit down and really consider all the variables that are in play in these scenarios, you suddenly find you’re Alice down the rabbit hole and this endless list of possibilities and potentially moral conundrums presents itself”. (Lauren Diamond)
KAROBELA’S stories provide a junction point for you to embark on a journey spanning an immeasurable number of lives and offer an alternative viewpoint: to switch expectations: a halfway meeting point to understand the behaviours and motives of people in our everyday lives.
“These songs start out being OUR stories, but we want them to become YOUR stories. You can have perspective without judgement, attitude without confrontation, it can be as deep or as superficial as you like, but we feel it is important to have that dialogue, peel back the layers and just show the truth”.
RED LIGHT GREEN LIGHT signals the start of an ambitious new direction for the band, and with their increasingly busy live schedule, KAROBELA’S LIVE SHOW is showcasing them better than ever before.
WE are one of a thousand stories, a million characters and an immeasurable number of lives. Though the possibilities are endless, we are all intrinsically woven together and connected by an unbreakable thread. These songs start out being OUR stories, but we want them to become YOUR stories.
