Caroline Lost is currently working on her upcoming album One More Nail, and as one of the lucky few who've actually heard some of it, I can only say it's extraordinary. Working with film composer Christian Henson, Caroline has woven a mellifluous blend of sharp, lovelorn lyrics and scintillating vocals, all set to a bracingly original backing of organs and banjos, trumpets and cellos, xylophones and drums to create what will certainly be one of the most daring, innovative and utterly infectious albums of 2009.
Caroline has been a published songwriter these past two years, penning hits for artists across the globe and picking up a gold disc for Hanna Pakerinen's version of Go Go, a slice of booty-shaking pop perfection. Her songs have also featured in a raft of major motion pictures, including Severance (Summertimin') and Chasing Liberty (To Be With You), as well as vocal sessions for Chronicles Of Narnia and Diameter of the Bomb.
All of this has led Caroline to where she is now, holed up in the studio putting the finishing touches to One More Nail, an album of songs as beautifully written and lyrically insightful as anything you'll hear all year, with her haunting and crystalline voice the centrepiece of a musical approach that takes the pop rulebook and puts it through the shredder. Extraordinary.
