Carla Geneve

Carla Geneve released her debut self-titled EP on Friday 7th June via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.

Carla explains the meaning behind latest single, ‘Yesterday’s Clothes’ – “Yesterday’s Clothes is about falling out of love with someone and feeling guilty about it. I wrote it at time when I was burning the candle at both ends and had no energy left to try to deal with the end of a relationship. Most of the words came when I was doing a long drive back from some gig or another in regional Western Australia. I’d been up all night and had to be somewhere the next day, so I hadn’t had a shower or changed clothes. When you’re on your own driving for hours and hours it’s hard to avoid thinking about stuff that you don’t want to, so I guess I wrote the song to try to come to terms with my thoughts and situation.”

With a captivating live show and relatable lyricism, Carla Geneve burst onto the WA scene in 2017. After being hailed by Pilerats as one of their ’18 Artists to Watch in 2018’, her debut single ‘Greg’s Discount Chemist’ was released to overwhelming support including love from radio stations triple j, triple j Unearthed . The single was the #1 most played track in Perth community radio station RTRFM.
After releasing her second single ‘Listening’ and garnering praise for her showcases at BIGSOUND, Carla Geneve has landed back-to-back grand prizes at the coveted West Australian Music Song of the Year awards. the Albany-born country rock artist took out the top gong with her song 2001, which was inspired by the Stanley Kubrick classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Geneve also won the Rock category with 2001 and the Folk category with Things Change. Her album was released June 7th, 2019.

An Australian singer-songwriter with a gift for deadpan observation and deftly deployed guitar licks, Carla Geneve sneaks up on you: Her songs can feel like overheard conversations, but also she’s got a keen instinct for just when and how to crank up the dramatic tension. She’s only just released her debut EP, and Geneve has already locked down a pitch-perfect mix of booming peaks and seething near-silences.

Fremantle’s own Carla Geneve is back with another heartfelt track, guaranteed to have you belting the lyrics back at her. Don’t Wanna Be Your Lover is the first taste of her debut full-length album which is due to be released later this year.

In the coming weeks Geneve will be supporting Julia Jacklin on her Australia tour, while Carla and her band were planning on heading to Austin for SXSW 2020, this Perth muso may have a little more time on her hands following the cancellation of the March festival for the first time in 34 years). Check out the intimate video for ‘Yesterday’s Clothes‘ released alongside the EP. Directed by Matt Sav, Carla says of the video, “I wanted the video to reflect the personal nature of the song. To me, sitting alone in front of a camera is a vulnerable situation, a lot like releasing a song to the world which describes private parts of my life. I also think that the simplicity of the video serves the live sound of the track“.

Don’t Wanna Be Your Lover up close and personal music video screams Carla Geneve from start to finish. Easing in with a classic beat, Geneve’s shot from different angles, some accompanying her pastel pink guitar and application of her signature eyeliner. It intersects progressively between the concepts of masculinity and femininity. Director Duncan Wright says the video aims to “promote Carla’s bold and unique outlook through a wide range of emotions, vulnerabilities, tension and braveness” – and it does just that.

Chorus line “Don’t wanna be your lover, you bring out the best in me, but I don’t wanna touch you,” is emotive and powerful paired with a heavy indie-rock instrumental that builds epically, notably from the bridge onwards. Stripped from its visual element, this track stands alone and powerful in its meaning and musicality. As she continues to grow before our eyes, Geneve’s fans will have this one on repeat.

Carla Geneve’s self-titled debut album is a delightful listen. Introspective and clear, the songs on Geneve’s debut serve as an introduction to her honest and direct songwriting and grunge-influenced rock sound. The songs on this album deal mostly with love and identity. Geneve’s voice radiates over the guitar riffs. Carla explains the meaning behind latest single, ‘Yesterday’s Clothes’ is about falling out of love with someone and feeling guilty about it. I wrote it at time when I was burning the candle at both ends and had no energy left to try to deal with the end of a relationship. Most of the words came when I was doing a long drive back from some gig or another in regional WA. I’d been up all night and had to be somewhere the next day, so I hadn’t had a shower or changed clothes. When you’re on your own driving for hours and hours it’s hard to avoid thinking about stuff that you don’t want to, so I guess I wrote the song to try to come to terms with my thoughts and situation.”

On “2001,” Geneve sings, “I am not in touch with my emotions, I am a little kid going through the motions,” over a steady guitar melody in an ode to loneliness. On the pensive album closer, “I Hate You (For Making Me Not Want To Leave The City),” Geneve’s voice shines over the guitar ballad. Carla Geneve is a substantial debut from a singular voice.
