Ali Barter - Chocolate Cake Tour
Today, unconventional pop star Ali Barter releases her new EP Chocolate Cake. Following on from singles ‘Twisted Up’ and ‘You Get In My Way’, the 4-track EP is out now on Inertia Music. Alongside its release is a lyric video for the title track, made with the same creative team for her previous singles; We Made That.
The Chocolate Cake EP 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.
“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.
Previous Chocolate Cake single ‘Twisted Up’ was added to triple j and received support from Tone Deaf, NME, Purple Sneakers, Music Feeds, as well as ‘You Get In My Way’ gaining love from FBi Radio and Carte Blanche.
