Hot Takes: Getting to know Mother’s Cake

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – Who is in your band?

We are Yves on guitar, Benni on bass and myself, Jan, on drums.

Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

We are explosive, intoxicating and fun to listen to. At least that’s what we’re going for. We named it Cyberfunk! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Q3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

I would suggest the whole part from โ€œThe Operatorโ€ to โ€œHit on your Girlโ€ as it embodies all those previously mentioned qualities. For older songs, I’m going with โ€œRunawayโ€. You could call that our very own โ€œSmoke on the Waterโ€.


Q4 – What is the plan for 2020?

To be spontaneous. 2020 proved to not be the year for longtime plans.

Q5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

I Want You (She’s so Heavy) โ€“ The Beatles

Q6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

The Mars Volta

The Beatles

King Gizz


Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

Live: The only thing I can say for sure is that our Germany tour moved to March 2021.

Listen: All the platforms you can think of. Best case on vinyl at home with some time to listen to it all the way.


Q8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

I’d say Kangabearpig. We got power, some dirt and tend to jump around the stage.
