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 released in 2019 was compared (by heaps of people) to pop rock favourites such as The Strokes, Vampire Weekend and The Beatles – 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.

Last year the band found itself split across QLD and NSW and were faced with the challenge of pulling a live sound from individually recorded tracks. Thankfully WAV files are not susceptible to COVID so with a mammoth amount of assistance from our producer, Matt Stewart, we managed to sneak some ideas back and forth over the border and what came out has been described by some members of the band as a modern day masterpiece, Hurting. A song about that stage of a relationship when you know how the other person is feeling before they are ready to express it themselves.

We're talking Hans, we're talking Zimmer, we're talking LAYER CAKE - Coming atcha full of sweetness and that extra tang!

Tidy new one from this equally precise Brissy band. The nodding pace with those dreamy vocals and nice whistling moments seal the deal.

I love this song so deeply. It's nuanced, emotive and just that kind of right that you need to hear to get through your day.

this one from layer cake has that tender, magical quality that has me daydreaming while walking down the street.
