Influenced by NYC original punk (Blondie, Ramones, Heartbreakers), 60s girl groups (The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las), with a drop of Lou Reed & The Velvet Underground’s deadpan cool – The Carvels NYC bring sticky tuneful rock and roll with powerful unique vocals, rollicking Thunders-style guitar licks and wailing sax.
The long-awaited full-length album from The Carvels NYC, Live at the Cutting Room is out now via Die Laughing Records! The album was recorded in May 2020 at legendary venue The Cutting Room in NYC with producer Freddie Katz, and mixed/mastered by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion).
“Meaty-beaty, guitar and sax-fueled… pure punk-pop by The Carvels NYC, in downtown lockdown!”
– JonZip McNeil, UK Indie Radio
“With Lynne Von Pang’s robust voice leading the band through anything but the motions, it doesn’t take long to figure out that all you really need to get through the apocalypse is a saxophone…”
– Blues Bunny Magazine
“If you go out not wearing a mask, there’s gonnabe another plot on the death graph…another case for the hospital staff….wakethe fuck up and do the math…Stay the Fuck Home!”
– THE CARVELS NYC
