CARRON are an Indie-Folk band from Dublin led by sisters Méabh & Mella Carron, alongside their wonderful guitarist and co-writer Darragh McGrath. Pinned as ‘ones to watch’ by Jim Carroll of The Irish Times, these siblings are unique in their style of singing and song writing, attempted to capture a sense of one shared voice reinforced by a strong sibling bond.
With their latest single 'Battle Lines' quickly shooting to #1 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts in June 2017, and a busy summer season with performances at Bloom in the Park, YouBloom, Groove Festival, Secret Village, and Electric Picnic, CARRON have set their sights toward 2018 and beyond with plans for new releases in early 2018.

"Sisters in blood and folk sensibilities, Méabh and Mella Carron's newest song addresses family illness but wraps it up with a Celtic take on the feminine side of Fleetwood Mac."
- Nialler9, The Irish Times
"Simple, unadorned acoustic tunes with a smidgin of folk, a rub of trad and a big dash of pop, there’s enough potential on show from the Carron siblings on “Battle Lines” to mark them as ones to watch."
- Jim Carroll, The Irish Times
"Separating themselves from some the twee or overtly commercial pitfalls of the folk-pop sound, CARRON’s ethereal textural voices give a depth to the music as a whole and allude to promising paths for the duo to take in future recordings"
- Stephen White, The Last Mixed Tape
"CARRON have composed an incredibly courtly compilation here, the style of which is extremely exquisite. The enlivening delivery of its vivifying vocals combined with its elegantly executed instrumentation gives rise to a truly enchanting assortment of folk songs that should impress a large listenership."
- Dave Simpson, Pure M
