“Why can’t I sleep?/ Maybe I should try counting sheep,” is something I often say to myself as I toss and turn, quivering with a myriad of thoughts. It’s also the opening line of The Carbons’ new single Sleep so ya, I fuck with this. It also helps that they’re ripping out stellar indie rock forged in the forests of Kelowna, BC.

“Over half of the people in the first world have reported having trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep,” says the band. “The line in the song that describes this best in our opinion is being ‘stuck in between able and weak.'” Their new single Sleep rumbles from the crypts of our heads and the chasm of our hearts with deep burning vocals from the belly of a mountain.

The Carbons are currently preparing their next album. Listen to their last, ‘August Ash’, on Spotify.

Most recently, The Carbons completed The Ski Bum Tour and the Beach Bum Tour and shared the stage with Canadian Legends The Trews and Sloan. They have now performed over 70 shows across six provinces in support of their debut LP and have landed on legendary stages such as The Horseshoe Tavern, The Roxy, and The Fox.
