Eddie Wang - I Bought Myself A Cake - Stereo Stickman

Eddie Wang I Bought Myself A Cake


What begins as a quirky and intimate ode to spending a birthday alone, soon evolves into a boldly poignant and heartbreaking expression of isolation and disconnection. Eddie Wang masters the unexpected once again, with the beautifully captured piano-pop ballad I Bought Myself A Cake.

Known for his striking and versatile vocals, a theatrical powerhouse performer with a distinctly stripped-back, organic softness overlayed, Eddie Wang is a songwriter like no other at present. His latest releases always surprise in both topic and style, and yet even with such diversity of approach, his voice and musicality maintain essential threads of identity throughout his repertoire.

For I Bought Myself A Cake, the songwriter gets devotedly vulnerable, reflecting on the pain of knowing others are enjoying their time together, partying and smoking, drinking, without so much as a passing thought of you or what you might be going through.

It’s a familiar ache, the outcast’s sense of detachment and loneliness – a perspective most have consumed themselves within at some point. Eddie’s representation of this is decidedly powerful. The music is hopeful, nostalgic and long-form in a refreshing, theatrical way that proves true to much of his catalogue, but the writing has a piercingly honest sting about it that captivates from start to finish.

Beautiful songwriting and stunning vocals – a musician and artist with a consistently unique and evocative edge to his take on modern life and music.
