LITTLE Barrie have returned with a blinder of a new track in the form of ‘I.5.C.A.’
Following the release of their last album ‘Shadow’ in 2014, Little Barrie embarked on a worldwide tour. The low budget US west coast leg of the tour involved travelling from Tokyo to Los Angeles.
Little Barrie wanted the new music to reflect some of the chaos and beauty of that time, but do something sonically different. The aim was to combine the influence from Beastie Boys albums like Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head with the explosiveness of 60’s freakbeat to create their own sci-fi fuzz. “We wanted the effect of cut up sounds and rhythms, but recorded as a live performance rather than just remixing ourselves.” They experimented on the basic recording gear at their disposal and Barrie modified his guitar to get the effect he was after. “There are lots of influences going on, from The Beastie Boys to Norman Collier”.
They will be playing the Blues Kitchen, Brixton on 20th May and also supporting the Brian Jonestown Massacre on a number of dates – more details below.
