Perth artist Carla Geneve has today announced her debut self-titled EP will be released Friday 7 Junevia Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.
To celebrate the release, Carla has premiered a new single ‘Yesterday’s Clothes’ on triple j’s Home & Hosed.
Carla explains the meaning behind the song – “Yesterday’s Clothes is about falling out of love with someone and feeling guilty about it. I wrote it at time when I was burning the candle at both ends and had no energy left to try to deal with the end of a relationship. Most of the words came when I was doing a long drive back from some gig or another in regional WA. I’d been up all night and had to be somewhere the next day, so I hadn’t had a shower or changed clothes. When you’re on your own driving for hours and hours it’s hard to avoid thinking about stuff that you don’t want to, so I guess I wrote the song to try to come to terms with my thoughts and situation.”
‘Yesterday’s Clothes’ follows single ‘2001’, which debuted at #1 on the AMRAP charts, attained a triple j spot add and saw tastemaker MattWilkinson of Beats 1 come out as an early fan, praising her“incredibly powerful voice” on his radio show.

After being hailed by Pilerats as one of their ’18 Artists to Watch in 2018’, her debut single ‘Greg’s Discount Chemist’ was released to overwhelming support including love from triple j, triple j Unearthed and community radio.

After releasing her second single ‘Listening‘ and garnering praise for her showcases at BIGSOUND, the end of 2018 saw her lead with seven nominations at the 2018 WAM Awards where she won Best Singlefor ‘Greg’s Discount Chemist’ and Best Rock Act.
