From Lawrence, KS by way of Ireland, Carswell & Hope bring vintage rock sounds and sensibilities together with big harmonies, carefully crafted textures and inventive songwriting.

Carswell & Hope were formed in 2012 when Irishman Nick Carswell arrived in Lawrence, Kansas looking to start a band. He found Jason Slote (drums), Austin Quick (bass/keys) and Jordan Tucker (guitar) and they released their debut LP A Hunger in 2014, accompanied by an Irish tour. Since then, Carswell & Hope have built a following in the US Midwest, sharing bills with Mayer Hawthorne, The Mowglis, Glenn Tilbrook (of Squeeze) and Mundy (IRL).

Carswell & Hope offer an eclectic blend of singer-songwriter, alt-rock, electronica and psychedelic, with spacious and delicate arrangements set amongst big rock sounds and rich vocal harmonies.

2018’s Exit Plan EP sees a new line-up and new shades of indie pop emerge from vintage rock sounds, with “a tenacious, magnified sound” (90.9 The Bridge). The Exit Plan EP is available on all digital streaming services and for sale through Bandcamp.
