Barrie, Dom, Noah, Sabine, and Spurge – collectively known as Barrie – return with their second single, "Tal Uno.” Their debut track “Canyons” received a warm welcome from fans and writers alike, meriting early support from Paste, Gorilla vs. Bear, Pitchfork, MTV, Stereogum, The Line of Best Fit, and more. “Tal Uno” shows another side of the group’s songwriting as they leave listeners with one last thought – “don’t you think that you can do better”.
While the group now calls Brooklyn home, each member arrived via their own avenue, coming from Baltimore, Boston, São Paulo, London, and Upstate New York. Previously, lead songwriter Barrie Lindsay worked as a studio assistant for a sculptor, while Spurge and Noah work at The Lot Radio – a community-run, online radio station – where the three met through a mutual friend and connected with their drummer Dom. And then there’s Sabine, from Brazil via Berlin, who was recruited through a Tinder profile set up by the band to track down a bassist.

GoldFlakePaint : New Music : Barrie "Canyons"
Every once in a while a debut single arrives so elegant and fully-formed it’s hard to believe that there was nothing else before it.
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.
