Welcome To Baker Island

We are delighted to announce we will be release the second album by Baker Island this Summer. Restless Legs will be available on 12" vinyl and digital formats from 25th August. The single Write Home will precede the album on 4th August.

Baker Island are a band from Newcastle who make indie-noise-pop like “the fuzzy love child of Pavement and Pixies” (NARC. Magazine).  Starting in 2013, initially as a recording project of Sean Dodds - with help from a collective of people including Jonny Helm from The Wave Pictures and Chris McManus from Pure Graft – they eventually became a live band comprising Sean (guitar and vocals), Kev Raijah (guitar), Cathy Russell (bass), Chris Perriman (keys) and Matt Hayward (drums).

Between 2014 and 2016 they self-released 3 singles and a debut album 'Bobby Hundreds', "an LP filled with gloriously wonky-pop tunes" (NARC).  EP 'Four Days In The Life Of The Auto-Icon' was released on California's Wiener Records, and their last single 'Demolishing The Fourth Wall' was released on EDILS Records in September 2016.  These were played on Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscroft and Gideon Coe), and BBC Introducing in the North East. 

During this time, they’ve played at Indietracks Festival, Evolution Emerging Festival, and alongside Jeffrey Lewis, Chorusgirl, Sky Larkin, Oh Well Goodbye, Dignan Porch, Allo Darlin', Witching Waves, The Wave Pictures and The Lovely Eggs, amongst others.
