My Friend The Chocolate Cake


My Friend The Chocolate Cake

Their name alone should have ensured a quiet life for My Friend the Chocolate Cake. No one dreamed of ARIA awards or the kind of ageless and eternally devoted audience most bands with cooler names would kill for.

Somewhere within the unlikely union of kitchen sink piano tales, vivid chamber orchestration and hell-raising instrumental shenanigans, the Melbourne band has carved out a 28 year career including eight studio albums, two live albums and two retrospective albums, including the most recent release The Revival Meeting.

This is music to weep to, music to dance to, music to live by.  You may not have heard of the band but you’ve probably heard their music, they are firm favourites of the television and film industry.  My Friend The Chocolate Cake's music can be seen to straddle the worlds of ambient and world music, with an emphasis on piano and violin-led acoustic music.

The band's collective musical influences are diverse and include: Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Irish and Scottish folk music, Joy Division, Arvo Pärt, and folk / pop / rock performers such as Billy Bragg, Talk Talk, John Cale and Michelle Shocked.  Each album displays a range of styles from subtle chamber music instrumentals to atmospheric folk/pop ballad fusions through to full scale romps.

Be there to witness the birth of their 8th Studio album  The Revival Meeting.
