On January 8th, The Kents premiered their new single, “Caroline (I Can’t Explain)” off of their 2017 EP Within Waves. Lead singer Warren Frank explained the story behind the song is about his late grandmother, Carol.
“I never met her, but just from the things that I’ve heard, my dad and my uncle felt a lot of what I felt as a kid. They felt security and love, which is really something you can take for granted if you have it. This song – “I can’t explain the ways that I need you,” is a message to the two of them; the way that I need him and the way she left a mark on her family. Her presence is remembered and missed.”
The Kents are spending the rest of January on the road in support of the single and EP.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
