Emo-punk duo Carb on Carb released their sophomore album for ages last May to great international review. The album continues to give - today they share visuals for 'Annual Leave' a confronting, yet inspiring track about the all-consuming rat race. The video premiered on Spincoaster last night in support of their upcoming Japan tour.
Filmed mostly in the beautiful surroundings of Northland, New Zealand, Carb on Carb swap out suburban backgrounds for scenic views. They transport between serene farmland, lush forests and orchards... all the places we'd rather be! "All the things you wanted to be buried under a 40-hour week" lead vocalist Nicole Gaffney sings of lost time and the desire to break free from alienating labour. Watch the video for ‘Annual Leave’ below.
Tomorrow night, Friday, May 3rd, Carb on Carb will play a release show at Whammy Bar, Auckland, marking a year since the release of their second LP, for ages. Support from Auckland's finest; indie-rock gem Being., looping genius, Ana Te Kōtiro and shoegaze band Blush Juliet performing their debut show.

This show doubles as a fundraiser for Carb on Carb’s forthcoming 9-date tour across Japan beginning May 17! Among the many cities and venues they will be performing in, Carb on Carb are set to play at Tokyo’s acclaimed Shimokitazawa Sound Cruising Festival which involves a massive 12 hours of live music across venues all over the city. Shimokitazawa is well-known for being Tokyo’s “most indie neighbourhood” (Japan Times) and the festival welcomes over 100 bands every year, with very few coming from overseas.
