A new experimental folk two-piece made up of producer Harry Bookless (Little Xs for Eyes) and singer-songwriter Aaron Page (Water Cycle), Carriages have recorded from bedroom studios to the National Concert Hall. Some of their most exciting work is done outdoors though, where Harry collects found sounds from which he spins intricate beats and musical backdrops to accompany Aaron’s delicate songwriting and guitar work. Forests, beaches, abandoned rooms – these are the places from which Carriages draw their sounds. Truly folk music for the modern age.
