Barrie - Happy To Be Here
out May 03 via Winspear (LP/CASS/CD/DIGI)
I N F O
Barrie, Dom, Noah, Sabine, and Spurge – collectively known as Barrie – began releasing music together in early 2018. Their first single, “Canyons” quickly resonated with fans of ambient, dreamy pop. Later in the year, Barrie released “Tal Uno” then “Michigan”. Collected together for a 12" release with Winspear, the 3 singles comprise side A, while side B features remixes by FaltyDL/Shura and Brother Michael.
Converging upon Brooklyn from all over the world, most of the band initially met via their involvement with The Lot Radio, an online radio station that broadcasts from a shipping container in Greenpoint. Barrie first met Spurge & Noah (who both DJ at The Lot), then joined forces with fresh-from-London drummer, Dom (of Is Tropical). Sabine who landed in NYC from Brazil via Berlin, found Barrie on Tinder and swiped right.
Their debut record Happy To Be Here – produced/engineered by Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Solange, Grizzly Bear) – arrives May 03, 2019 via Winspear. See Barrie on tour with Miya Folick in February/March followed by SXSW and their first UK & EU tour in April/May.

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.
