The Carps are from Scarborough, a pretend hood in Toronto. They are a duo that plays music for human ears. With the EP the “Young & Passionate Days of Carpedia,” and the most Recent offering “Waves & Shambles” the two ragamuffin punks deliver on the promise to set themselves far apart from elephants, swirly red and white candy, beards, brothers and sisters, and Phil Collins. The Carps stand alone. They sound like nothing you could imagine, and everything you’d like to.
With Neil White captaining the Argo like ship, instructing the bass and synths with a focus akin to that of a Scientist, Jahmal Tonge plays the drums with the passion of a black baptist preacher, and sings & screams with the soul of the sweating young singer in the neighboring Juke Joint. Marketing companies would say: It’s Punk Rock with a Gun to R&B’s head. And somehow in the midst of the exquisite smorgasbord of sounds, they manage to convince us all that Soca music and New Jack Swing makes for good company.
The Carps have played to Enthusiastic crowds in their hometown of Toronto, and across North America and Europe with friends The Cool Kids, The Hives, Datarock and MIA. The Carps can be consumed in Genre defi ned parts, according to your stylistic preference. The Carps however, feel better when taken whole.
