TUNE Bakery - Tribe
Berlin based band Bakery release their debut album 'Lucy' on 18th November via Brooklyn label Axis Mundi Records.
Bakery have come to life within a broader collective of musicians, filmographers, dancers, visual artists and like-minded creatives that the band have been collaborating with, and which has inspired the creation of a gender bending sound where psychedelic soundscapes mix with waves of electronica, where hip/trip-hop meet lo-fi soul and avant-garde.
A perfect example of their approach is the first single 'Tribe'. "A fourth floor, Kreuzberg, a USB mic and a wicked beat began the form of what is now known as 'Tribe'. Searching for verses and hooks through waves of improvisation, it took roughly a year of re-recording vocals and re-arranging the track to bring it to where it is today. Throw it on in your car, turn the bass up, trip out..."
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 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 “surre- al” sets, the first one in the middle of a sandstorm.
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 out in that oven of sound treatment and baked to a delicious crispness. In 2016, the band has started to unveil the tracks from Lucy one at a time, serving out special sur- prises with each one to jolt the mind and please the senses.
