Bakers Eddy

Kiwi band Bakers Eddy “have earned a reputation for playing absolute blinders” (MusicFeeds). And their shows, led by charismatic Ngati Porou & Ngati Tuwharetoa front man Ciarann are quickly becoming the stuff of legend. The band spent most of 2022 touring, undertaking their own 25 date national album tour in June, as well as supporting The Buoys, Stand Atlantic and WAAX, in addition to prior shows supporting the likes of Gang Of Youths and The Rubens.
Bakers Eddy released their debut album, Love Boredom Bicycles in March 2022, after delaying the release due to the pandemic. Recorded with Oscar Dawson at the helm, the album spawned the infectious singles ‘21’, ‘Concertina’ and ‘My Baby’s Like Cigarettes’ which all received spins on triple j and community radio.

‘Furthering the band’s pivot from grungy, pub-dwelling punks to summer-ready indie-rockers, the new song soars with a cruisy soundscape of dry, low-fi guitars, jangly tambourines and a warm, fuzzed-out vocal melody evocative of surf-rock icons like The Beach Boys.’ – NME

‘Frantic, distorted and utterly vulnerable’ – Rolling Stone, 4 Stars

‘Nostalgic and irresistibly charming’ – Pilerats
