CARB ON CARB Announce WA tour dates

Auckland based duo Carb On Carb have announced three intimate shows in WA after having toured only the East Coast of Australia in the last couple of years.

They hit El Grotto, Scarborough on July 27Odd Fellow, Fremantle on July 28 and The Bird on July 29, promoting the release of their new 7 inch, Practicing For Retirement/ Ma, their first release since 2015

Support comes from the finest of WA’s emerging indie rock, including Split Cities, Terrible Signal, Glass Waves, Joys, Sam Blitvich (Sly Withers), Shit Narnia, Flossy and Divorce Party.

The band say that the two songs are reflective; post-tour ruminations on things to do and things not done. Practising For Retirement revolves around that ubiquitously felt pressure to be productive and make use of your time, while constantly failing to be.

Ma is a song of both regret and ambition. Gaffney lets us in on her relationships with her grandmas, and the harsh lesson she learnt encapsulated in the simple but relatable line: “I wish I had the chance to talk to her as an adult, I really sucked as a pre-teen.”

Carb On Carb play July 27 at El Grotto, Scarborough, July 28 at Odd Fellow, Fremantle and July 29 at The Bird. For more info head to the band’s Facebook page or to listen to the tracks head HERE.
