E is for Erland and The Carnival

Erland and The Carnival are a British folk rock band. They have had only two album releases, the first being 'Erland and The Carnival' in 2010, and the second coming out just last year titled 'Nightingale'. You can listen to the whole albums by clicking the links. They also released a small EP in 2008, so they have been building up recognition for a while. They are good at merging pop and folk tunes and melodies.

Since I am only showing you this one band for E, I will show you my favourite song from each album.
The first song is titled 'Trouble in Mind'. I chose this black cab sessions video over them singing live just because its quite a nice song to her without background noise. Quite a melancholy tone, but nice and light.
My second favourite is from their most recent album, which is called 'Springtime'
Again I've used the more commercial video, as the live ones didn't have as much oomph. But I really like the way it builds up and his vocals are really good.
I'll also give you the link to their other videos on Youtube, they are in the Full Time Hobby Records channel.

Hope you like them
Are there any bands you like starting with E?

Love and Peace.

I like their sound very much. They have a style that is familiar - some of my favorite bands sound similar - meaningful lyrics you can actually hear, strong vocals, and a mellow feel. However, I cannot take roaches, so I didn't finish the second one. Keep up the good work! Go Team Tina~
