Born to Death

Three-piece sludge pop band Karen Caskets was born during the pandemic in Portland, OR when two solo indie-rock-indie-folk musicians decided to turn up the fuzz and form a louder-than-heck grunge band. Carl Caskets and Kitty Caskets (later joined by Shag Caskets on drums) created the mythology of Karen Caskets–legendary mortician and embalmer who directed her own funeral... from the grave. They released their first full-length record Gravitron –chock full of loud 90s alternative bangers -in 2022.
