To label Brooklyn, NY band Baked as a mere "rock" band is to dismiss their vast and varying sonic ability. Their new EP- titled simply II, is nothing if not evidence of this. A true sonic mélange; the short and sweet release wanders all the way from fuzzed out post-punk to dreamy, carousel-esq pop and back again in only 5 songs. Songs like "Hope You're Happy" and "A Hartlett Anthem" (referring to former member and vocalist of Ovlov, Steve Hartlett) engulf listeners in a wave of shredding power pop guitars; while songs like "Thus Far Been" and "Good for You" are brooding, brutally honest takes on twangy-tinged indie rock. With such a wide aesthetic variance in such a quaint release, it's hard not to be impressed by Baked and one can only hope to hear more.
We have your first listen of II in it's entirety, listen below.
