Barrie is the project of Barrie Lindsay – a seasoned songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, currently living in Brooklyn, New York. After growing up in the small town of Ipswich, Massachusetts, Barrie attended Wesleyan University to study music theory and composition. Following college, she worked as a studio assistant for a sculptor and an assistant to the curator for contemporary art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
After moving to Brooklyn, Lindsay released Singles in Oct 2018, which featured “Canyons”, “Tal Uno”, and “Michigan”. In early 2019, Barrie announced the project’s debut album, Happy To Be Here, which she co-produced with Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Grizzly Bear, Solange). Barrie wrote the songs late into the night, alone in her Brooklyn apartment, and her voice feels full of possibility throughout. The ten-track collection is a softly explosive document of Barrie’s vision for a well-crafted pop song, which features contributions from Dominic Apa, Spurge Carter, Sabine Holler, and Noah Prebish. Barrie’s music has received praise from The New York Times, GQ, Stereogum, NME, The Fader, Zane Lowe, SiriusXMU, BBC1, and much more.
"Darjeeling," is another downright dreamy statement from a band that, despite forming just last spring, shows promising cohesion and polish.

smooth, soft-pop purity
Considering it's their second single ever — their first was the equally dreamy "Canyons" — it sounds like they've had years to perfect their sound.
