Feeling a little lacklustre in the office today? Spare the probing caffeine addiction and consume some short and sweet Melbourne punk courtesy of Bakers Eddy. The band’s new track ‘If You See Kay’ is a scathing message to, well, a cheating fuckface.
Clocking in at a rapid 2.30 minutes, the quartet don’t need any more time to get their message across. The Melbourne-via-Wellington group pair Thee Oh Sees reminiscent guitar riffs and vocalist CJ Babbington’s half spoken-word and half screaming to leave a hostile impression.
If the song’s meaning wasn’t already obvious enough, Bakers Eddy’s own words will be able to help you out:
“‘If You See Kay’ is a modern cautionary tale involving a fictional character, sex, drugs and rock and roll. A punk track through and through with dirty drums, fuzzed up gats and rowdy vocals, the track is as subtle as a nail through the foot and as charming as the cheating fuckface that it is about.”
‘If You See Kay’ is a true punk-rock song, but as you’re kicking shit around to this track, just watch out for those photographers. I’m looking at you, Josh Homme.
Be sure to belt this one out with Bakers Eddy as they tear through NSW this weekend!
