The Cakes

  • noun (a band) see memorable and catchy.
Let’s break the mould here, The Cakes are easy to categorise; they write memorable, catchy rock and indie-pop songs with an electro feel. They have a strong punk-ethos when it comes to writing, sometimes songs come as the result of a jam, and often they leave a rehearsal with two or three new songs behind them. They are a ‘songs band.’
“…tangy changes of direction, slices of lip-smacking melodies skipping off here, there and everywhere with a sharp vocal tone.” – Live review, Sandman Magazine
The Cakes, hailing from Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, played their debut gig in April 2005 and went on to headline a local festival, play as support to signed acts on the national gig circuit, sell over one hundred copies of their debut CD and receive BBC radio play all within the space of a few months. They will appear in the Northwest Battle of the Bands Final before the year is out. Their potential was also spotted by M.A.S. Records, who have taken them on a development deal.
“Sharp, stripy hooks and hummable organs.” – Live review, Leeds Music Scene
As has been proven at gigs and via international radio airplay, The Cakes’ music appeals to a wide audience, young and old alike. Their hard-working DIY attitude is paying off as their repertoire of songs and gigs increases.
“Quirky and unique…” –
In 2006, they aim to further raise their profile, locally and nationally, with gigs already planned at well-known venues such as The Cavern in Liverpool and Night & Day, Manchester . They’re recording their debut album in January and are even hopeful of playing the SxSW festival in Austin , Texas this March…
