Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

Our music’s been described as indie pop but we don’t try and restrict it to a genre. The sound evolved from us writing and rehearsing together as well as our relationship as friends and bandmates. 

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

Our experiences as teens. Although we’ve only had so many, our experiences have a huge impact on our music and writing. 

What can punters expect from an Erthlings live show?

We’re still new to all the performing so expect a bit of nerves, but we also try and give our best performance and make it entertaining to watch!

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

Definitely ’Nice to be Alive’ by Ball Park Music. It's all there in the title. The lyrics and the chorus are so positive and always bring good vibes.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

'Hold' by Vera Blue! Although it’s not a sad song it’s super emotive and we all love the song.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

Our fave band-dad, Dan always tells us that your manager can only work as hard as you do and that has stuck with all of us! If we all work super hard as a team then we’ll get things done! even though we're young, we've wanted to be a band for years and now that it's happening we want to do our best!

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

Definitely throw it back to Kylie Minogue's ‘Get Outta My Way’. respect to the queen of Oz pop!

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Skeggs, last weekend! It was super crazy and a little hectic in the mosh, but we all loved it so much and had the best time!!!

Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you.

Cosmo’s Midnight, Angus and Julia Stone, The Presets and DMA’s are all big ones for us! We've grown up with their songs and we look up to all of them as an inspiration. DMA’s for example, debuted at BIGSOUND like us!

What are your plans for 2018?

Exciting new music releases coming soon! Hopefully more gigs, writing more songs and many more new experiences (and hopefully passing year 10 exams)!

Bakers Eddy

( )

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne based rockers Bakers Eddy are this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist. They've got a strong love affair with Green Day and once pulled a high flying karate kick on stage. 'Leave It To Me' is the new single from the group. It's loud, messy and fast and we love it.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

Simplicity I think is at the root of our music, that all comes from our love affair with Green Day as kids, and only knowing 3 chords when got together so our songwriting capabilities were limited. But it’s always been a bit fast and a bit messy. Our sound has developed with our own personal taste. 

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

When we wrote our EP we had just moved to a big city, we were living together for the first time, partying a bit much so that experience gave us a bit of inspiration. A good old fashioned break up also does the trick.

What can punters expect from a Bakers Eddy live show?

We like to test the strength of our equipment, we like things to get a bit messy on stage, a bit hot and heavy. I did this one sick as high flying karate kick connecting with the ride cymbal, but no one noticed which has been bumming me out a bit.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

I think the best advice was “don’t listen to everyone’s advice”. When we were younger It felt like everyone had an opinion on how we should have done “this” thing or “you need to do” and on and on. I don’t think that helps your confidence. I’m not saying we don't listen to advice full stop, just not the dumb shit. Do you, baby.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

 Love Online by The Don. I think fat bass licks put a smile on anyone’s face.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

 The Void by Tiny Little Houses is a good one of you want that good self pitty, “I’m a piece of shit” sob. Late night, alone with a dart and cheap wine is where the song really blooms.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

There would only be one song playing to start with. Can’t get you out of my head Kylie Minogue.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Got to see Birdhouse and Porpoise Spit last night who were both disgustingly good.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.

The scene here is amazing, it’s been an inspiration being a part of it. And the diversity of the music coming out is great.

What are your plans for 2018?

It’s hard to predict what next years going to look like for us right now, kind of just riding out the new single, getting this year done, then we will see aye. Love to drop an EP.
