DECEMBER 2020: christmas single
I WILL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS (THIS YEAR) 2020
Can it be Christmas without the obnoxious Christmas song?
Yes. We have however recorded one as a homage to The Beach Boys. Check also the video here.
OCTOBER 2020: 8TH SINGLE (CLOSING TRACK)
This song started while trying a vocoder on another project. I could not resist an indian touch nor the omnispresent theme of "the word". What word? Who cares? It is not the word but the sum of words that turn thoughts into nonsense.
This track closes the CAN album. We hope you have enjoyed the journey. There will be more to come shortly. Cheers!
september 2020: 7TH SINGLE
An affair started and ended over a cup of coffee.
AUGUST 2020: 6TH SINGLE
LOVES IS MORE THAN A FEELING
Disco music, first I love you, then I hate you and then I appreciate you.
JULY 2020: 5TH SINGLE
IN HER YOUTH
The song was written in the 2010s about my 2000s which I lived them like the 1990s.
may 2020: 4TH SINGLE
IN GOD WE TRUST
We hated discothèques and sociality. We would wait outside in the car park looking at the stars under the influence of legal and illegal substances and watching the people going in and out of love and leisure.
This song was written 18 years ago. It claimed glam-rock since the beginning so here it is.
You can hear a demo of the new version here.
APRIL 2020: 3rd SINGLE
FAITH IN YOU
We could not publish it in March so this fourth track comes in April.
Our CAN album was meant to carry fresh and simple tunes but still being explorative as usual.
With Faith In You, we are entering into the new rock sound THE BACUM was long looking for.
This number started as a R&B attempt but once a Fender Stratocaster stepped into it, it was hard to keep that ole' rock and roll soul out.
Hence, gone are Phil Spector's strings, reverb and lush electronics of yester album.
As for the lyrics... it's a one-size-fits-all about disappointment... and yes, I mean YOU.
FEBRUARY 2020: 2ND SINGLE
This second track is about being lost/to lose and there is nothing to rejoice about it, so don't you dare.
While the chorus was written in a blink, the verses took some time. It was the first song to be specifically written for this album so it still carries a bit of the lush production of previous releases.
FIRST SINGLE RELEASE 2019... OF THE NEW album... now!!!
AROUND IT GOES AROUND
This is the first single released from the 8 song album CAN.
This time the album will be released in instalments of one song per month.
This song was originally intended in french. We don't know what it's all about but we are sure when we wrote it, it made sense. We hope that's the case with you, my dear.
december 2019: NEW album
Free at last! Yes, you CAN... listen for free to The Bacum's latest release... CAN
Contract obligations forced the band to record another album before hitting stardom.
This time the group explores new genres hoping someone will notice, even lawyers.
So, treat yourself with a cuppa and be ready to enjoy this journey because after all, beauty in life might as well be a tin can.
