premiere: listen to Barrie’s dazzling debut single “Canyons”
We're psyched to premiere the magical debut single from Barrie, a young Brooklyn band that we expect will win a lot of hearts in 2018. The group, whose members serendipitously converged on NYC from various locales -- Baltimore, Boston, São Paulo, London, and Upstate New York, specifically -- says that every revision to the sumptuous, warmly glowing "Canyons" "was like a swipe of sandpaper, stripping it down and roughing up the sweetness." The end result is a wistful, swaying dream-pop gem that twinkles like hazy city lights on a late-night cruise down Mullholland Drive, and it's an automatic addition to our "best songs of 2018" spotify playlist. Listen below, and look out for more from Barrie soon via our friends at Winspear. And you happen to find yourself in Brooklyn this week, catch the group live on Thursday night at Baby's All Right as part of NADINE's record release show.
