BIOGRAPHY

LA-based new wave and post-punk artist Marc Baker brings attitude to pop and romance to punk. He throws roses into the crowd. He swings the mic around his neck while donning a three-piece suit. This is what’s to expect when the Melbourne born and bred singer takes the stage.


The music, too, is reflective of all these things compounded with the frenetic energy and indelible melodies prevalent on the records he grew up listening to, which continue to serve as inspiration. Filtered through his and producer Benjamin Plant’s (Miami Horror) discerning ears—the songs recorded during their sessions yield a contemporary spin on that beloved, vintage sound.

The first single is entitled “No Place I’d Rather Be.” Its refrain illustrates the emotion Baker so brazenly wears on his sleeve: “There is no place I’d rather be than next to you, holding hands, watching the world fall to pieces,” he sings.

But it’s the yearning expressed—that desire and desperation to connect—which is most revelatory about Baker and the timeliness of his arrival. Sure, while that sentiment of longing is no stranger to song—it’s perhaps even more relevant today, where connectivity, though ostensibly at our fingertips, has never been so far away.
