MEDIA RELEASE - MAY 2010

‘GIVING YOUR LOVE AWAY’ – NEW SINGLE FROM THE BAKERY

Sydney’s one and only 11-piece party extravaganza, The Bakery, are launching their new single ‘Giving Your Love Away’ on friday the 7th of May.

With punchy horn lines, a deliciously bouncy groove and captivating vocals, The Bakery’s ‘Giving Your Love Away’ tells the story of a girl who gives too much. In what could be described as a lament for ladies-in-love, the band have struck a slightly more serious note than on previous releases, adding a little more depth to their festive dance-inducing tunes. Laced with soul, dub and hip-hop, this catchy new single is sure to please.

Included on the single are two remixes of the track by local producers MoR and Volcano, and two live tracks from their forthcoming Live DVD – The Bakery Live at The Manning Bar.  A radio edit of ‘Giving Your Love Away’ is also available.

FREE DOWNLOAD

As a special treat for fans, ‘Giving Your Love Away’ will be available for FREE DOWNLOAD from The Bakery’s website (www.thebakery.net.au) on 7th May – but for three days only! Make sure you get in while you can.

GIVING YOUR LOVE AWAY’ LAUNCH at THE MAC FRIDAY 7th MAY

Coinciding with the radio release of ‘Giving Your Love Away’, The Bakery will be playing a special 3-hour set at Sydney’s House of Funk, The Macquarie Hotel on Friday the 7th of May. After a few months of song writing convalescence, the band will be back in full force, very much looking forward to packing The Mac to the rafters for one crazy night – nothing less than a single launch deserves. Best of all – it’s free!

ALBUM REVIEW by Jaslyn Hall

Hot from The Bakery
This live Sydney band really cooks on their debut studio album

When you are crackling hot live, recording in a studio must be a labour of love. It's paid off for this Sydney 11-piece band. They've only been around since 2006, but already know what makes the hearts of fans beat fast. The music is a blast of horns, keys, guitar, bass, drums and percussion, ska, soul, swing, reggae and drum 'n' bass. Energetic ska-fuelled beats drive 'Handsome Young Devil". The two female vocalists provide the perfect mix for the driving soulful grooves of 'Way Back', the opening track. The arrangements are tight, the rhythm section keeps the beat pumping, and there is some extraordinary soloing - everyone pushes to the limit in this debut recording. I'm sure that their live 'neo-orgasmic-soul-funk-jungle-party-core' tag will always be intact. We all have a universal need to groovem and The bakery make great music for loving and dancing, a CD you can listen to again and again.
