Listen To Baecorp's Single 'Pak N Gap'

After melting hearts with dream-pop debut single 'Can I Tick a Feeling?', Tāmaki Makaurau's Baecorp aka Sam Denne (Skody Banks, Babyteeth) and Nirvana Haldar return with snappy fresh stunner 'Pak N Gap'. Sparked by the sensory overload of navigating the "Hellscape" of Royal Oak Pak'nSave's butchery department, the pair rail against our industrialised culture of unending consumption in a shoegazey, guitar-shredding manner that feels somehow uplifting, despite the song's upsetting implications...

"One day at the supermarket I took a wrong turn. As a vegetarian, there's not really any reason for me to wind up in the butchery aisle but due to my lacking navigation skills I found myself standing in a corridor of blood and polystyrene..

There was just something about seeing all those shrinkwrapped packages of flesh that got me ruminating on the worth of my own life. I started thinking about where I was at the time: stressed, isolated, in an unhappy relationship, confused about what the rest of my life was going to look like. I felt freakish and alien placing boxes of cereal and tinned tomatoes into the trolley as I navigated the Hellscape of Royal Oak Pak'nSave. Like, how the hell did we get here? What are we doing to each other, to animals, to our planet? I know it sounds silly and I'm ranting like a washed up xEarthCrisisx fan or something but my brain melted and I fell to pieces.

Big shoutout to any other ADHD/ASD people that hate the sensory overload of grocery stores. I feel you <3"

'Pak N Gap' is out now on major streaming services.
