Track of the Day: The Paddy Cakes “Hollywood” (2018)

Gippsland rockers The Paddy Cakes have released their new track “Hollywood” as the first taste of their debut EP, due for release next year. Produced by Dylan Adams (Skeggs, DMA’s), the track is a punchy indie rock effort that has come just in time for summer. Catchy and fun, “Hollywood” is a solid Aussie alternative rock track.

Influenced by the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Two Door Cinema Club, this song combines these sounds with some great Australian charm. Certainly reminiscent of Favourite Worst Nightmare or Tourist History, “Hollywood” is one for the indie rock fans. Quickly forging a name for themselves in the Aussie music scene, this Melbourne band are definitely one to watch.

The Paddy Cakes’ debut EP will be released in early 2019, with each track inspired by the fun-loving, mischievous nature of the band. According to lead guitarist Oakley Kerr:

“The EP was written about times we’ve all gotten ourselves into sticky situations, good and bad ones. Having fun and causing trouble, and then having to deal with the consequences. But it all works out in the end, just like the movies.”

To celebrate the release of “Hollywood”, The Paddy Cakes have announced a single launch show, which will take place at The Gasometer in Collingwood on Saturday 8 December. Making music together since 2016 and working hard to refine their sound, the show and next years EP are set to be fantastic.

“Hollywood” is available now. You can find out more about the band via their Facebook page, and be sure to catch them live at their single launch show on Saturday December 8th at The Gasometer, Collingwood.
