Noah Becker: „Bakery is Lo-fi experience“
Da steckt schon eine coole Marketingstrategie hinter der Band Bakery. Aber wo soll man sie korrekt und genau einordnen? Die Musik ist irgendwie insich sehr vielfälltig, die Videos sind aufwendig produziert und sie selbst, die Musiker sind so aufgeschlossen und herzhaft, wie kaum sonst jemand. Natürlich ist schon lange die Presse auf die Musik des Sohnes einer berühmten Tennis-Legende aufmerksam geworden. Sie schreiben unter anderem:
““Bakery are responsible for some sweet salutations, for some crusted loaves of whole grain melody“”
““Jagged electronica and silky smooth vocals from Berlin-based experimentalists Bakery.“”
“„melancholic mixture of dubby, soulful, jazzy, psychedelic and, above all, triphopped elements“”
“„Roll with the thunder and listen now the new album of Bakery in the stream“”
Bakery is a genre bending, tripped out, Lo-fi experience. Psychedelic landscapes evolve with golden waves of electronica. An elongated, circulating current of energy flow marks each stanza expanding in layers of formulaic chaos, letting you immerse yourself in the cool blues, the dynamic purples, the voltaic vocals, the proser driven guitar licks. Bakery is an open collective experiment. genre bending, hip/trip-hop, psychedelic, avant grade, Lo fi soul. Combining Art, Music and Mixed Medias. We feel and hear in colours.
We are vibes, delegating with different tribes…. Based out of Berlin Bakery has come to life within the broader collective of musicians, filmographies, dancers, visual artists and like minded creatives that the band has been collaborating with. The first four videos the band has put together stand as a testament of this collective’s brilliance.
While in Berlin, the band joined another collective, “Bird Milk”, with whom they done performances at underground festivals and events in Germany and Eastern Europe last year. Bakery’s first official show was at Berlin Festival in May 2015, sharing the main stage with music mammoths such as Rudimental playing on that same day. They went on to headline a stage at Fusion Festival where the band played for over two hours to a crowd of over 3000 people, playing a dynamic set which flowed effortlessly from the band’s album tracks, to an electronic jam set, to full on techno meets psych rock. Bakery then headed to Black Rock, NV, to play two sets at “Burning Man”, invited by the founders of this very eclectic festival. True to their nature the band performed two “surreal” sets, the first one in the middle of a sandstorm (see image right).
Upon returning to Berlin, Noah, Temple and Anton began to piece together the tracks which eventually became their debut album “Lucy”. Around that time the band met Alex & Digby Smith, 2 young brothers recently moved to Berlin from Guilford after running Steve Lillywhite’s studio in the UK for several years. The raw sounds of Bakery were put in that oven of sound treatment and baked to a delicious crispness.
