Martin Carr

Live at The Borderline, Soho


 

Carr’s long awaited third solo album, NEW SHAPES OF LIFE was written and recorded last year in the Cardiff-based singer-songwriter’s home studio. Its eight songs were formed as if
under a spell – by soul music, the death of David Bowie, and what proved to be his own increasing emotional breakdown. Carr completely re-imagined his general approach towards
making music, moving away from the guitar towards visionary use of sampling, but significantly, focusing more on meaning than craft.

“I was looking for a sound and a voice to call my own,” Carr says. “That was the starting point. The theme was to be myself, to attempt to discover what made me tick, to work out why I behaved the way I did. I wanted to go deeper and find more room in the depths… NEW
SHAPES OF LIFE is the fi rst album I’ve made where I can stand by every word I’ve written. It’s the first one that sounds like me and it won’t be the last.
