We always enjoy hearing from our friends in Eat Your Birthday Cake. They dropped us a note yesterday with word of yet another new song—this one called “Kathy + Ken,” from their forthcoming album, Enemies. It’s a piece of bubblegum-pop that makes its way into your heart with distorted keyboards and minimalist beats.
In case you missed the first two songs they released from the record, you can grab them here; you can now follow the band on tumblr here.
Hot on the heels of Eat Your Birthday Cake‘s recently released track “Poor Young Werther”—which will appear on the band’s upcoming full-length, Enemies—comes the new song “You With That Short Hair.” The local quintet posted the track all of three hours ago on its SoundCloud page. (Thanks to vocalist/keyboardist Marc Neibauer for the heads up.)
Philly’s Eat Your Birthday Cake has a new album slated for a spring release. It’s called Enemies, and you can download a new song‚ “Poor Young Werther,” below.
Front man and keyboardist Marc Neibauer says the song was inspired by the book The Sorrows Of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The song also features Bill Storck on guitar and Robert Rouse on drums. From the opening soft-rock keyboard notes to the quick-step rhythms of the drums and the sonorous guitar playing, “Poor Young Werther” finds some common ground between the Alan Parsons Project and the French band Air.
