CARRON are an Indie-Folk duo from Dublin, led by sisters Méabh and Mella Carron, alongside their guitarist and co-writer Darragh McGrath and live band. Starting out as one sibling's effort to boost the spirits of the other after over a year of extended hospital stays, invasive surgeries, and traumatic uncertainties, CARRON eventually developed into a vessel for their kinship - a project they can share, shape, and learn from together.
In their music and songwriting, their aims are to create a sense of one united female voice that is amplified by the strength of their sibling bond, to blend impeccable harmonies through shared blood, and to subtly nod toward their Irish heritage and backgrounds in musical theatre.
In April 2016 they released their debut EP entitled 'Roots' which quickly shot to No. 4 in the Irish iTunes album charts, and was voted 'Best EP of 2016' by both Pure M Magazine and Gigonometry. In the following months they embarked on their debut Irish tour throughout Dublin, Cork, Galway, Belfast, and Limerick, as well as a slot at the London Fleadh festival supporting The Coronas.
Their last single 'Battle Lines' was released last June 30th, reaching No. 1 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts, being warmly received from After stand-out performances at Electric Picnic, Groove Festival, YouBloom, Bloom in the Park, Ruby Sessions, and a headliner in The Workman’s Club in Dublin, CARRON have nestled themselves in studio for the Winter months to record a brand new EP, entitled ‘Even Sad Birds Sing’, due for release early this Summer.
The first single from the EP, "numb", is scheduled for release on Friday April 6th, exactly two years since their debut release.
