When: Sat., Nov. 26, 9 p.m. 2016
Burlington-based alternative-pop quartet Carraway are just about to release their long-overdue debut album, The Bad Year. It’s a somewhat ominous and prescient title, in light of recent national events — though it’s doubtful that was the band’s intention. Carraway’s 2014 self-titled EP was full of the kind of guitar-heavy, angsty pop-punk that topped the alternative charts in the late 1990s. This sound is ever present on the lead single, “Last Night.” Recently, the band unveiled The Bad Year’s second single, “I’ve Come to Love.” Its pulsing pop beat suggests new avenues. Check out Carraway’s album release party on Saturday, November 26, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Locals Better Things and Grand open.
