Melbourne via Wellington’s favourite punks, Bakers Eddy return with new single ‘Can’t Afford It’. To coincide with the single release, Ivy League Records is incredibly excited to welcome the band to the label family. Formed in Wellington, New Zealand when they were just 13 years old, Bakers Eddy began when three high school friends decided they wanted to do something other than skating with their time.
A song that has already been uniting audiences in cathartic mass sing-along at their recent live shows, ‘Can’t Afford It’ is undeniably catchy and can barely contain the band’s ruckus, youthful energy.
“Can't Afford It is a song about living pay check to pay check and trying to make ends meet,” explains front man Ciarann Babbington. “I wrote it in my bedroom after coming home from the supermarket, on a budget of $3.50, still managed to make a dope lentil Bolognese.”
