TOTW: Carpark – The World Ended in 2012
Indie powerhouse Carpark bring us their latest track “The World Ended in 2012”, a rich and rebellious-feeling narrative around ancient beliefs and the modern-day climate issues. From the track-titled EP, “The World Ended in 2012” is a dive into the 2012 phenomenon, and the ancient beliefs that transformational events would occur at the end of 2012, while also curating a comparison to the current global climate emergency. Carpark have perfected an angsty, fierce, yet soft teenage-kicks vibe with this record, while also shining a light onto important issues.
The band have toured the UK, supporting Lauran Hibberd, and have become a featured Underground England Soundwave band alongside Yungblud, Beabadoobee, Pale Waves and Nova Twins, after just playing their first live show six months prior, in a friend’s garage in Belfast. The Irish-rooted trio are already pushing the boundaries, and making a name for themselves, with a hit like “The World Ended in 2012”, and we can’t wait to see where this EP takes them.
When asked about the release, the band stated;
“The song explores the pressures of living in an ever evolving disconnected world where we experience rising feelings of inadequacy while having to deal with feelings of climate grief and uncertainty.”
“The World Ended in 2012” is out now across all major streaming platforms.
