Melbourne-via-Wellington four-piece Bakers Eddy have marked the start of a fresh and exciting chapter, today releasing their irresistibly catchy new anthem for the new year, 21. Produced by Oscar Dawson, the single arrives on the eve of three Victorian headline shows for the band, kicking off on Friday 12 March at Pelly Bar (Frankston), followed by an early and late show at Hotel Westwood (Footscray) on Friday 19 March before finishing with an all-ages show at Northcote Social Club (Melbourne) on Saturday 20 March.
21 is a dance between the uncertainty of growing up and the reflection of youth; what starts off like a ballad soon bursts into a cathartic mass singalong for the times, a sensitive yet carefree homage to all the unknowns ahead for early 20-somethings. Packed full of the band’s signature punch, ‘21’ continues Bakers Eddy’s reign as one of the most exciting local bands!
In the words of lead singer Ciarann Babbington:““To me it symbolises the shift from teenage innocence to adult ‘bullshit’ and all the fear, excitement and uncertainty that goes with a major change like that.”
In lieu of live shows, Bakers Eddy spent much of last year writing and recording their highly anticipated debut album, due in 2021 (watch this space!).
Garnering a reputation for being one of the most exciting new live acts in the country – don’t miss your chance to catch the band on their 21 single launch tour.
