Melbourne-via-Wellington four-piece Bakers Eddy have gifted us with ‘A Verry Merry Christmas’ – the season’s most pop-punk Christmas carol bound to bring the hectic vibes to the festivities ahead!
LISTEN: Bakers Eddy –‘A Verry Merry Christmas’
In the words of Bakers Eddy:
“The idea of doing a Christmas Song went from “hey wouldn’t it be hilarious if we..” and turned into the most important endeavour this band has ever embarked on. The prospect of creating a timeless holiday classic for generations to come. And after the year we’ve all had I think we wanted to do something fun that could take our minds off everything else going on. Fortunately we were all locked down together so we managed to write the Christmas hit of the decade and get it recorded in our living room, Jingle Bells and all, 2 months out from Christmas Day.
Dry sarcasm aside, this was a fun little project and we hope this adds a bit of spice to everyone’s Christmas Caroling. Who knows, maybe our dream of making it onto one of those awful Christmas Compilation CDs will come true. That would be a Verry Merry Christmas for all.”
‘A Verry Merry Christmas’ is the first new music from the band since the release of ‘T-Shirt’ in March, and was produced by Oscar Dawson as the band emerged from lockdown in Melbourne. ‘T-Shirt’ followed their equally anthemic standalone singles ‘On My Own’ & ‘Can’t Afford It’.
In lieu of live shows, Bakers Eddy have spent much of the year writing and recording their highly anticipated debut album, due in 2021, as well as inviting fans into their candid, hilarious world by launching a new YouTube series ‘Bakers Eddy’ – watch the first three episodes HERE.
Watch this space – 2021 is bound to be a big one for Bakers Eddy.
