Line Up

Inspired by all styles of music, their influences are drawn from across the spectrum: from the intricate arrangements of Fleetwood Mac and Queen, the virtuosity of Clapton and Hendrix, to the contemporary stylings of modern day bands such as No Doubt, The Pretty Reckless and Royal Blood.

With such a broad pallet to draw from, it’s immediately apparent that Karobela’s sound is one of a kind.

Karobela are a beacon for the stage - a flood light in the dark - bringing rock to the forefront of a pop heavy world and reminding you that the stadium filling rock bands of the past are still present today. From your first sight of tartan and leopard print, you can’t help but be drawn in by the band’s infectious character, immense stage presence and seductiveness. Karobela are putting their own very individual stamp on the world of alternative rock music, carving a path of their own and taking no prisoners along the way.

‘Skin & Bone’ is out now and is a cut that soaks up the influences of a classic rock up-bringing matched with a keen sense of contemporary music. Soaring choruses and infectious hooks personifies Karobela’s mission - this is ‘an unquestionable aural affirmation that this is the future.

C:M are back with a new line up and a new EP showing off their new direction. Now featuring The Impossible Man on vocals, C:M are bringing you a mash up of hip-hop, trap, dubstep and rock, held together with their own brand or deep bass wobbles.
