Melbourne via Wellington’s favourite punks, Bakers Eddy recently spread Christmas cheer with the release of their new single, A Verry Merry Christmas. Now they're here to really get you in the holiday mood with the tracks official music video. The visual depicts the four piece band as a team of Santa Clause impersonators, running amuck on Aussie streets. Has Santa ever been this cool? Dancing in front of shimmering garlands with giant candy canes.
Speaking of the track, the band shared: “The idea of doing a Christmas Song went from “hey wouldn’t it be hilarious if we..” and turned into the most important endeavour this band has ever embarked on. The prospect of creating a timeless holiday classic for generations to come. And after the year we’ve all had I think we wanted to do something fun that could take our minds off everything else going on. Fortunately we were all locked down together so we managed to write the Christmas hit of the decade and get it recorded in our living room, Jingle Bells and all, 2 months out from Christmas Day. Dry sarcasm aside, this was a fun little project and we hope this adds a bit of spice to everyone’s Christmas Caroling. Who knows, maybe our dream of making it onto one of those awful Christmas Compilation CDs will come true. That would be a Verry Merry Christmas for all.”
In lieu of live shows, BakersEddy have spent much of the year writing and recording their highly anticipated debut album, due in 2021, as well as inviting fans into their candid, hilarious world by launching a new YouTube series Bakers Eddy.
