New Zealand-born, Australia-based punks, Bakers Eddy, return with a brand new single, 'On My Own'.
On the single, the band shares, "'On My Own' is a celebration of laziness. I'm declaring that I feel uninspired and uninterested and it's so fine. There's so much guilt that comes with having off days in a world of 15-second socialites, where everyone's got their own highlight reel, and I think it's totally fine to slow the fuck down and embrace your introvert every once and a while."
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 with their time other than skating. Originally comprising of lead singer Ciarann Babbington, Drummer Jamie Gordon and Bass player Ian Spagnolo, the band quickly recruited Ian's twin Brother Alex Spagnolo on guitar. "We got sick of Alex playing PS3 in the same room while we rehearsed, so we taught him an A chord and he was in," explains Ciarann.
Whilst still in Wellington, the band supported the likes of Highly Suspect, Gang of Youths, and The Rubens. They also graduated high school and continued to hone their craft, while successfully managing to avoid going to college or getting real jobs. In 2017, the band moved to Melbourne, and took on the task of writing 50 songs in 50 days, which varied in themes including being broke, drinking too much, failing at love, and more.
In 2018, they enlisted the help of fellow Kiwi, producer Tom Larkin, and independently released their debut EP I'm Not Making Good Decisions. The band spent the rest of the year playing shows up and down Australia's East Coast as well as in Europe. Later in the year, released the single, "Leave It To Me" which was added to high rotation on triple j and community radio stations and saw them championed by triple j Unearthed, taking out the platform's coveted Falls Festival 2018 comp in Victoria.
Bakers Eddy kicked off 2019 by signing to Ivy League Records/Music and is currently writing and recording a bunch of new material. Australia's newest adopted sons are always ready to party with their infectious, fast-paced tunes in tow.
