‘if Nick Cave was a lady……and was a fan of jazz music, then he'd be a little bit like Caroline Ty…..exotic rhythms and big vocals, crashing in waves against a pebbly beach of contemporary lyrics and new-wave poetry’. The Mag
Following the successful release by Kent based songwriter Caroline Ty of ‘The Trap EP’ in 2009 and ‘Love and Honey EP’ in 2010 comes the new EP ‘They are only Human, but we treat them like Gods’.
Available as a digital download from 2oth June 2011, the EP title swipes a cheeky paw at the obsession with celebrity worship.
A dizzy Nu-jazz infusion of dub bass, old skool funky beats and haunting strings, the four tracks are self-penned and performed. The confessional and sometimes richly dark and ironic song lyrics are delivered with a bluesy mezzo vocal, invoking the zeitgeist of money grabbing, broken promises and regret.
Recorded and produced by Caroline Ty in her studio in Kent, and mixed and mastered at Transmission Studios based in Hove.
‘Far away percussion and spacey synths play host to a woozily seductive vocal. As everything goes off at odd angles, there’s something strangely obsessive about Caroline’s declarations of devotion. Like a stalker. But a stalker you’d say hello to’. Overplay.com
