Free Cake For Every Creature celebrate a birthday in “All You Gotta Be When You’re 23 Is Yourself”
It makes a lot of sense for a band named after cake to make a birthday-themed video. In “All You Gotta Be When You’re 23 Is Yourself,” Katie Bennett and the Free Cake for Every Creature gang are surrounded by sparkly party decorations and (of course) hand-drawn donuts as they sing about making the best of what you have. The track is off of the band’s latest LP Talking Quietly of Anything With You.
It’s all green tea and carrot cake in the twee-pop singer/songwriter’s world. In “23” Katie reminds us that it’s the little things like going on destination-less walks or revisiting childhood book collections that often mean the most when everything else seems uncontrollable. You may not have your dream job but you can “call yourself an artist / work part-time at whole foods / it’s all good.” She has an infectious knack for looking on the bright side.
Watch the clip below and catch the band at The Pharmacy on Wednesday, July 13th.
