Mountains of Cash by Ask Carol: Review
Two-piece alternative indie rock band from Norway, Ask Carol have staged an ironic society with their recent single from their upcoming debut album (to be released August 26th), Mountains of Cash.
The opening of “Moutains of Cash” threw the rich people stomping on other people’s labors by a sound that couldn’t be more powerful, the strong drums and the definitive kicks on the fuzz created a distorting guitar sound. The rock tune combines a naked post-punk attitude, powerful vocals, and expressive lyrics.
The lyrics mocking subtly:
“You have the money but you have no taste
And you just hide if it rains
A spray tan and a Botox face
Ain’t gonna cover the stains”
And later on, the alt-pop melody creates a rather cinematic setting, and the vocals get louder and more hoarse:
“How would you know about the people in need
Those who bleed
Pays for your greed”
The parallel percussion rhythms in the band’s progress motivated an outrage at the society that skewed the working people’s rights for their greed. Vocals and instruments follow each other like a tape that glues together the loopholes of capitalism, semi-soul and humanity. This song is quite clear about a particular voice for a general community. The wonderful sound and lyrics from Mountains of Cash will surely excite you more than ever with the understanding of a common voice– a warm hold-hand!
