Share new single "Saturated" from debut album 'Happy To Be Here' out May 3rd via Winspear. UK & European live dates this month!
Entitled "Saturated", the new track encapsulates the minimal, wistful warmth that resonates throughout the group's debut full length release. Speaking on the track, the band's
frontwoman Barrie Lindsay commented:
"This song is pretty pure. It came out fully formed, sounding mostly like how it sounds now. It’s minimal and exposed, kind of vulnerable but in a confident way. I want people to relate to that state of pure, open
saturation. I want this song to feel like a crush."
At the core of Barrie is an amalgamation of various cultures; an integral characteristic tying all tracks on their debut album together. The group is a Brooklyn five-piece made of Barrie Lindsay, Dominic Apa, Spurge Carter, Sabine Holler and Noah Prebish.
On their debut LP ‘Happy To Be Here’, their multidimensional take on classic pop sounds awake and present, like a group that’s daydreaming but firmly there with one another.
‘Happy To Be Here’ offers snapshots of the band coming together in the city, after having lived all over: Boston, Baltimore, upstate New York, London, São Paulo via Berlin.
“The scaffolding of this album is moving to New York and finding these people that make up the band,” Barrie says. “We’re very different, but
we cover each other’s gaps personally and creatively, and are eager to
learn from each other.”
