Carl Barat to record with new band

Artist News

Carl Barat

Ex Libertine/Dirty Pretty Thing Carl Barat is to venture into the studio with Eyes On Film, the electro-pop quartet with whom he made his on-stage debut in London last Thursday.

Speaking to the NME, Barat said: “If I say I’m doing it for the love, will I sound like a member of Bon Jovi? It’s because I met a band I really believed in. I met a band who do something very different to what I do, and thought it’d be good to step in. There was obviously a little bit of extra pressure, but it’s the feeling of being in a band again. I didn’t want to hold a band on my own, and I didn’t want to be in a band and have to sort of apologise for not being The Libertines. And this is totally different”.

Confirming a forthcoming studio session, he said: “I’m going to record a few songs with the boys. It’s the first time I’ve felt natural with a band in a long time”.

And a good thing, too; Eyes On Film’s SoundCloud discog could do with the extra content.
