Rising alt-pop band Carpark today announce their long-awaited new EP Born To Be Average which will be released in February 2024. They have also today revealed the next taster of the EP in the form of brand-new track MIA, listen here.

As well as the fast-paced and energetic MIA that hears the band’s grungier characteristics shine through, the EP features previous single Suburbs Of Hell, which has received several spins on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show. Speaking about the EP, the band add: “Born To Be Average introduces the new era of Carpark with heavy rock and even some dance elements, but we also have a ballad that pays homage to earlier Carpark, and a song that is so undeniably inspired by the pop/punk influences we grew up on. It’s been a really fun process and we can’t wait for everybody to hear all 5 songs in February.”

Carpark are throwing out the rule book and re-writing the narrative of what a rock band ‘should be’. They are the fun, relatable and refreshing band with Irish roots that this generation needs. Weaving together nostalgia, power, and infectious melodies they create a sound that transports you straight into the heart of a captivating coming-of-age film soundtrack.

Having only played their first live show as Carpark two years ago in a friend’s garage, Sophie, Hattie and Lauren have been cutting their teeth on the live scene, and are quickly becoming everyone’s new favourite band. They have supported the likes of Lauren Hibberd, Kelsy Karter and Beth McCarthy, plus have played festivals such as 2000 Trees and Barn On The Farm. More recently, they headlined a packed-out, high-energy show at London’s Lower Third.
