More about Carb on Carb:
Carb on Carb are Nicole Gaffney (vocals, guitar) and James Stutely (drums) and their reputation for being a hard-working touring band precedes them. In their relatively short lifespan they have already toured China, South East Asia, the US, Australia and Aotearoa.
Current single ‘Nicole’s Express’ (complete with video featuring Wellington’s own coffee-punks prizegiving) follows the first single ‘It’s Been a Rough Year’ which was released in February. That track was added to Spotify editorial playlists ‘Local Noise’, ‘Women of AU and NZ’ and more. Weirdo Wasteland summed it up “Carb on Carb have weaved this raw emotionality into a resolute anthem…this is the kind of song that’s important to have these days. Listen to it and tell me it doesn’t make you feel a little bit better about life as it is for you currently.”
