The Austin 100: Carla Geneve
Hometown: Perth, Australia
Genre: Folk Pop
Why We're Excited: An Australian singer-songwriter with a gift for deadpan observation and deftly deployed guitar licks, Carla Geneve sneaks up on you: Her songs can feel like overheard conversations, but also she's got a keen instinct for just when and how to crank up the dramatic tension. She's only just released her debut EP, and Geneve has already locked down a pitch-perfect mix of booming peaks and seething near-silences.
Listen to Carla Geneve's "Yesterday's Clothes"
