Rising from the ashes of several defunct bands, Brooklyn-based rockers Caretaker have been honing their sound since forming in 2016. Comprised of Erin Pellnat (lead vox), Eva Lawitts (bass), Alex Pulakos (guitar), Damian Sim (keyboard) and Chris Krasnow (drums), the newly minted group has been out cutting their teeth playing out at AVIV, Brooklyn Bazaar, Trans- Pecos, Knitting Factory and more without an official formal release to their credit.
That all changes very soon as Caretaker is gearing up to release its debut single, “Swallow,” in early June. The track showcases the band’s knack for crafting high-energy rock songs that make you want to dance just as much as they make you want to punch a hole in your wall. Listen here
“‘Swallow’ is a song about being trapped in a relationship (or any situation, really) where someone is successful in convincing you that you are constantly wrong,” shares Pellnat. “This gets to the point where you believe everything they say, gladly taking punishment and abuse from them and wrongfully accepting that you deserve it. You know that you would feel completely contented and sane if you just cut ties so that their influence can disappear and you can set yourself free.”
Look for “Swallow” out in early June and be sure to catch Caretaker at any of their upcoming live dates detailed below.
