Bio

KARLOU is the latest indie pop project from Sunshine Coast musician, Karrie Hayward. Cutting threads from her past folk singer-songwriter path, KARLOU has turned a new chapter indulging herself in sweet nostalgic pop hooks and catchy lyrics offering a second single 'Grew Up' on March 26.

Feeling a desire to brush off a past life, KARLOU felt the need to embody a new retrospect on life and her music. Empowering a strong shake on youthful lyrics and embracing the freedom of adolescence and fulfilment, a rebrand on KARLOU’s outlook was inspired.

Wanting to explore a deeper connection into the world of indie pop, KARLOU teamed up with Brad Hosking of Blind Boy Studios to craft a sound which resonated the path of a youthful passion.

Following the release of her debut single, ‘Bad Choices’, KARLOU received airplay from respected Australian radio stations which also included Triple J.

‘Liking the voice and how you've embraced this exotic synthy sound.’ - Dave Ruby Howe (Triple J Unearthed Music Director)

Although KARLOU expresses deep truths in her songcraft, she deems an inviting collectiveness of creative energy and witty mannerisms when performing.

KARLOU's onto something here. The unique vocal snakes around your headphones so nicely with a fuzzy pop track soundtracking some adolescent misadventures.
