Premiere: Gold Coast duo CAKES return with another ripping new single, Public Fish

They're playing Hey Bar in Brissy tonight and Miami Shark Bar tomorrow night.

After their release of their barnstorming debut EP Prescription Bugs earlier this year, Gold Coast duo CAKES have fired their first return salvo of the year with Public Fish, a typically hard-and-fast affair that'll get your feet moving. Taking a full DIY approach and recording, mixing and mastering the track themselves, it adds another level of charm to the already very charming two-piece's repertoire: "It’s not linear at all but I liked that each part of the song could have a different part depending on how dynamic, playful or aggressive it was. This is what shaped the lyrics. Some of these points include an experience where I caught a puffer fish and pride deteriorated to guilt, the Mighty Boosh, hand me down Versace shirts and a time where I went to Sydney as a kid… I saw a homeless man sitting in the middle of the footpath holding a sign that was asking for money to partake in some form of education. That has stuck with me and this song is about not taking things for granted."

It's a pearler, get stuck in below and go rock the fuck out with them at Hey Bar in Brissy tonight, or Miami Shark Bar on their home turf on Saturday.
