When we were first working with Aaron Lowell on artwork for the first single, he came up with a bunch of different beautiful ideas. We loved this design but it didn't quite fit, so we saved it. -- Barrie
I took the new tote bags with me to a recent trip to the Middle East with my gf & our friend Bridget...
Song from my other band’s last album. Part of which was recorded in New York, and is probably part of the causation to make me wanna move out here. This video was recorded in the Sahara though. -- Dom, Barrie
Secret Friend is an experimental dance party that I throw with my friends from POND Mag and my other band, Psymon Spine. For each installment we collaborate with an artist or group of artists to turn whatever venue/club we’re using into an immersive installation, and book musical guests we think will gel well with the visual theme they’ve set (including various side-projects from the Barrie crew)...
Please welcome Brooklyn band Barrie to GvsB today -- if you've been checking the site at all this year, you might be familiar -- and follow along as they share some of their favorite things throughout the day. The group's excellent Singles 12" is out today on limited baby blue vinyl via Winspear. To kick things off, Barrie would like this Penguin Cafe Orchestra classic to be stuck in your head all day:
