7 MP3 Songs
POP: Beatles-pop, ROCK: Modern Rock
The Carolines continue the evolution of pop, merging their own deeply creative arrangements with a vintage sound reminiscent of bands from the mid-60's-70's era of rock. Their song craft shows a healthy knowledge of some of the masters of rock music, including The Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder, and The Beatles. In fact, in many ways, The Carolines create the audio-illusion of Sean Lennon handling vocal duties on Sgt. Pepper-era songs.
The Carolines are a five-piece band based in Portland, Oregon, made up of brothers Aaron (lead vocals, piano) and Nathan Trueb (lead guitar), Nate Purscelley (guitars, trumpet), Matthew Lenhart (bass) and Jared Abraham (drums). They have demonstrated dedication and commitment by maintaining a set unit for over five years; two members were only 13 years old when the band began.
With soaring vocals and creative arrangements, The Carolines bring back a creativity that seems lost in the current state of modern music. They consciously synthesize such disparate influences as psychedelia, jazz and early rock, often in the course of one song and not once does the diversity seem forced. The band is an example of a group coming together, mixing their individual influences, and creating something that sounds like no one else.
Due to their longevity, The Carolines have great chemistry live, and in the studio their attention to song writing and arranging is meticulous. Highlights on their debut (November 2001) "Don't Believe What You Hear" include the masterful pop of 'Haley' with the catchy Beach Boys-like chorus; the intricate melodies of 'Gentleman" and the out and out vintage rock of 'Travel Rhyme'. One listen to their CD proves that The Carolines are producing some of the best pop songs to come along in ages.

"It's pop that's danceable yet rough around the edges" -Portland Citysearch
"...the debut seven-song serving by The Carolines is evidence that the pop well hasn't run dry in Portland. The Carolinian sound arrives at an amalgam of Beck, Ben Folds and The Dandy Warhols. Lead Vocalist Aaron Trueb risks heartthrob-hood with ballads like "Kings & Queens", "Myself", and the McCartneyesque "Portrait of a Doubt" -Backfire
"Haley has an infectious bounce and organ-infused chorus. 'Kings and Queens' is an absolutely gorgeous ballad with piano and harmonies smart enough to impress its many contemporaries. It sounds like the best song Ben Folds ever wrote. The Carolines fire on all cylinders delivering perfect retro pop songs". -The Daily, University of Washington , Intermission
