Carey hail from East Nashville and are perhaps one of the first bands that we can refer to as being “post-Bully.” Fellow Nashvillian Alicia Bognanno put acerbic, sweaty, Southern garage rock back on everyone’s radar last year with her emotive full-length Feels Like. You can hear some of that influence in the lyrics to Carey’s new single “Hey Caty,” which is essentially a bitter love letter to an ex-friend or ex-lover. It’s filled with a lot of choice, snide one-liners like this one: “And it makes me happy you’re always staring at your phone/ ‘Cause you can’t find your own way home.” We all like seeing the people who hurt us fail sometimes! It’s part of the human experience. Listen below.
The Carey EP is out 3/11 via Old Flame. Pre-order it here.
