CAROUSELS is the music project of Canadian songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Matthew Walko. Blending indie rock with soul and psychedelia, the music moves the body, pulls on the heartstrings and tends to stay in your head. Originally from Vancouver and now based in Copenhagen, CAROUSELS have expanded as live band and released a series of singles including In the City, Get Enough (Can‘t Get Enough), I Can‘t Stop the Rain from Falling, and The Fine Line.

Melodic, moody, and explorative—CAROUSELS tunes combine soulful beats, melodic bass hooks, psychedelic guitar flourishes, sweeping synths and stacked harmonies. The lyrics often counter the psychedelic pop sheen, exploring feelings of isolation and disorientation. For fans of Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Blur and Spoon.


The band has been playing in Copenhagen, including BETA and Råhuset and gaining interest in Denmark and internationally through recent releases.

Recent Releases

Up to Hear Music (US)

"Copenhagen-based band Carousels mesh catchy guitar lines and playful synth flourishes on “The Fine Line,” a scathing critique of incendiary figures that use hatred and sexism as a tool."

Obscure Sound (US)

"If you’ve ever wondered what an indie-rock Bond theme would sound like, then pressing play to ‘I Can’t Stop the Rain from Falling’ by rising Danish band CAROUSELS should give you a sweet glimpse."
