Bio

Hi we are Layer Cake – the band you didn’t see coming like that dollop of tomato sauce in Paul Kelly’s gravy recipe.

Our debut self titled EP to be released at the beginning of 2019 was produced, engineered and recorded by Matt Redlich (ball park music/ holy holy/emma louise), at Head Gap Studios and the Aviary in Melbourne.

What came out has been compared to indie rock favourites such as The Strokes, Vampire Weekend and The Kooks – however you can compare us to whoever you like, as long as they are incredibly more successful than us and we can live vicariously through an over fluffed complimentary comparison.

Following the release of our explosive debut self-acclaimed smash hit single, Keep Me Awake, we have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response and managed to pack Lefty's Old Time Music Hall (250 capacity venue) like a can of sardines for our very first show.

Layer Cake's second self-acclaimed smash hit single soon to be your new favourite song is our empty promise to you. Coming atcha full of sweetness and that extra tang!

I love the rocky boop-a-long feel of this tune. It makes me wish I had straight hair so I could swish it about while I jump on my bed and play a solid air guitar. Love the vocals also, there is something so trusting in their tone.

it's got heart and a pinch of swagger which is a great combo. there's a bit of spring in my step walking down the street to this.

Short and sweet and catchy little ditty that gets the job done! Nice one.
