About us

Who We Are

An exciting 7-piece Mancunian Indie band with the true sound of Manchester – fusing the nostalgic influences of pre-bomb Manchester while also bringing a forward thinking mentality to their sound keeping this style of music alive both now and in the future.

From Carbon are proud to announce that this future includes the 2016 tour with the amazingly talented Heather Small (M-People) at 14 dates across the UK*.

A creative line up of solid yet expressive drums and bass, guitars which veer from the intricate, to the raunchy, to the beautifully atmospheric; the soaring melodic tones of violin and piano with the emotive lead vocal and tasteful backing vocals; makes it easy to get lost in the soundscape of From Carbon.

From Carbon released its’ debut album ‘Wealth’ in late 2013 and the album launch saw From Carbon sell out The Deaf Institute. The rave reviews from fans and critics that followed were a testament to the hard work and song craft of the band. Since then, From Carbon have been performing at Greater Manchester venues and events such as the Night and Day Café, Blackthorn Festival and most recently selling out Gorilla and supporting Chameleons Vox at Academy 2 in December 2015.

From Carbon recently showed their support for the charity After Adoption playing at Carsons Bar in Middleton where Andy Diagram of legendary Manchester band ‘James’ played with his new band ‘The Spaceheads’ to support this great cause. From Carbon organised this fundraiser and raised over £500 for the charity.

From Carbon are currently working on material for the follow up to their successful debut album ‘Wealth’ and are now road testing one or two new songs… Watch this space!
