Today, sees the release of Ali Barter’s new release Chocolate Cake. The 4-track EP is out now on Inertia Music/PIAS. Along with the release, Barter has shared a visualizer for the title track.
Chocolate Cake was written across both hemispheres. Barter engaged in writing sessions in Los Angeles and Nashville before the crushing reality of COVID-19 jeopardized her first US tour and forced her back home to isolate in Melbourne. The EP was rounded out remotely with the help of creative minds Harlan Silverman, Lost Boy, K-Flay, who co-wrote the EP title track, Brandon James and lockdown buddy/ husband Oscar Dawson.
Ali Barter on Chocolate Cake:
“Most of the songs on this EP are about looking for answers in the wrong places, and about trying to find something that takes me out of my head. Searching for a chocolate cake in a hardware store is a parable for my life,” says Ali on the project.
Barter, has played dates around Europe, performing at Reeperbahn 2019 and whistle-stop shows in Los Angeles and Mexico City. She then returned home to Australia for the Hello, I’m Doing my Best tour which saw her sell-out shows in Melbourne and Sydney. Last November/ December saw the perfect ending to 2020 with Ali Barter touring throughout regional New South Wales & Victoria, and selling out eight shows.
