Carpark – The World Ended in 2012 / Single Review
March 4, 2022 | By: Rock Industry
Indie outfit Carpark storm onto the scene with energetic new number ‘The World Ended in 2012’. Taken from their new EP of the same name, the EP and single is out now. Carpark are the relatable, refreshing band with Irish roots that this generation needs. Having only played their first show 6 months ago out of a friend’s garage in Belfast, they have since toured the UK supporting Lauran Hibberd and have become a featured Underground England Soundwave band alongside Yungblud, Beabadoobee, Pale Waves and Nova Twins. Named BBC Introducing Shropshire’s ‘One to Watch’, the group were also named one of Underground England’s ‘Ten Bands to Watch in 2022’.
Speaking about the exceptional new release, Carpark share, “’The World Ended in 2012’ plays upon the 2012 phenomenon and the ancient beliefs that cataclysmic or transformational events would occur at the end of 2012. The song explores the pressures of living in an ever evolving disconnected world where we experience rising feelings of inadequacy while having to deal with feelings of climate grief and uncertainty.”
Fierce, energetic, angsty yet forever thoughtful, there’s something about ‘The World Ended in 2012’ that draws you in further with each listen. An infectious number that captivates your attention, Carpark have certainly unveiled a hit here.
