New Zealand duo Carb on Carb have released their new single ‘It’s Been A Rough Year‘, and announced a string of Australian dates which will see the two piece play all down the East Coast and Adelaide this March.

It’s Been A Rough Year‘ brings a new sound for Carb on Carb, a self-professed ‘emotive-punk band’. Written at the end of a hard year for them and many of their friends, ‘It’s Been A Rough Year‘ plays with nostalgic guitar lines and emotive pauses, engaging the remnants of 00s power punk. The track’s summery vibe blended with alternative guitar lines make for a feel-good anthem, with belting lyrics.

The track was recorded recorded by Dylan Adams in Sydney, mixed by Chris Teti (The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die) in Connecticut, and mastered by Dan Coutant in New York.
