Carpool Conversation was set up by Brian O’Reilly Jnr in Cork City. Brian built a home studio where he could write, record and experiment with music in an unrestricted environment. Brian, along with good friend Vinny Whelan, both multi instrumentalists, created an eclectic writing style which took them on many genre-hopping journeys.
Brian moved to London in September 2010 to broaden his musical horizons, collaborate with others and practice the art of lugging musical equipment through the London underground at rush hour.
Brian mellowed into the London music scene playing guitar into his loopstation along with sitar and layered vocals hoping to pick up some decent like-minded musicians.
Carpool Conversation is now a pulsating 3-piece London-based outfit who have recently been played and applauded by BBC 6Music Dj’s Lauren Laverne and Gideon Coe. Carpool Conversation comprises a deft Cypriot-Brazilian rhythm section coupled with an Irishman’s striking guitar lines that take you into a wide, groove-based plateau.
Expect to hear music that draws on multiple musical genres and sensibilities (alt melodic-rock, folk, psychedelic, eclectic indie-rock quirkiness and groove)
CC augment their sound with vocal harmonies, distinctive vocal effects and rare film samples that mix smoothly into their dense and immersive melodic songs.
“how lovely – nearly 60 years on from the birth of rock’n’roll – to hear a track that’s not quite like anything one has heard before. Oddly accessible and charmingly eccentric” Tom Robinson-BBC6 MUSIC
Carpool Conversation released their debut album 'Carpool Conversation' independently in 2012 on their own label -Walk Records
