Exploding In Sound Records is thrilled to announce Debt, the full length debut from Brooklyn indie psych band Baked. Following their self titled debut EP, the band’s hazy pop sound expands into new territory with gorgeous sonic detail, hypnotic rhythms, and lush layered guitars and keys. Debt combines psych, indie pop, and flourishes of shoegaze and fuzz soaked punk to offer the perfect soundtrack to a summertime spent getting fried and staying mellow.
Stereogum premiered “Mick Jagger,” (HERE) the album’s stunning centerpiece and first single today, introducing the band’s sound as “bleary psych-pop that unfolds like an expansive vision but penetrates like a dead-eyed stare,” before offering, “this is a magnificent leap forward that has me desperate to hear what else Debt has in store”
Baked is a 5-piece psych / indie rock band from Brooklyn, NY. The band have developed a growing cult following throughout Brooklyn’s thriving DIY community where all members of Baked have a strong presence. While founding members play in both Leapling and Lost Boy ?, Baked is far from a side project, as the core of the band have been writing and performing together in various projects since back in their college years at SUNY Purchase. Baked was officially born in 2012, after the opening Big Snow Buffalo Lodge the year before, and they have been actively playing shows ever since. Baked independently released their debut self-titled EP in the summer of 2013, and re-released an extended version earlier this year on Forged Artifacts.
Baked will kick off another round of tour dates throughout the Northeast with Titus Andronicus, beginning on June 4th in West Virginia. All upcoming dates, including stops at Bushwick’s Open Studios and Northside Festival can be found below.
