Sisters and multi-instrumentalists Méabh & Mella Carron formed their namesake band CARRON as a healing project during a period of extensive hospital treatment. They released their number 1 charting EP 'Roots' to rave reviews (Pure M, TLMT, Hot Press), along with follow-up singles 'Prison Robes,' 'Battle Lines', 'Even Sad Birds Sing' and 'Numb' which received extensive Irish airplay across 2FM, 98FM, 2XM, Dublin City FM, KCLR, Northern Sound and more.
Starting out, CARRON, were pinned by Jim Carroll of The Irish Times as ‘ones to watch’ and have since performed sold out shows at music venues all over Ireland including Whelans, The Grand Social, Monroes, Dolans, The Sugar Club. Their most significant festival appearances was performing the Salty Dog stage at Electric Picnic last year.
Their new single ‘She’s Fire’ is a reworking of track 3 from their debut EP ‘Roots’, and was expertly remixed by emerging pop royalty Richey McCourt (Will Young, Pixie Lott, Laoise, Aimeé, Thanks Brother).
The song describes a pivotal point in the sisters' adolescent lives.
‘A time when we were growing up and thought we knew everything and we would fight so much that it would break our moms heart’ - Méabh Carron, singer + violinist.
In their music and song-writing which they create alongside long-time collaborator Darragh McGrath, they aim 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 whilst maintaining a contemporary and powerful sound.
With new music collaborations in production from their home during uncertain times, you can expect to hear some more quirky tunes from CARRON this summer!
