Arrays – is the solo studio project of JP Carroll – the archetypal one man band. JP writes, performs and arranges the songs, records and produces the tracks, and even handles the mixes by himself. Music is his obsession, from writing a song, to mixing it and releasing it.
The new album ‘Light Years’ is a tour de force of melodic, guitar heavy, metal-infused rock. This record is proudly independent, self produced and funded, and another way point on the journey JP is on to achieving the sound he hears in his head.
‘No Way Out’ presents a visceral, aggressive aspect of Arrays, driven by a palm muted hero riff, before the syncopated, stomping bridge lands. ‘Little Blue Dot’ reveals a softer side, until the anthemic final chorus. ‘Home’ is a twisted time capsule for our shared experience in lockdown, and the title track sets off the record with introspective lyrics and an arrangement big and wide enough to carry them.
