Ever since the London-based trio Little Barrie emerged from Nottingham in 1999 they have been cooking up their very own storm of rock, blues and good old-fashioned garage! This year they are set to unleash some more of their musical goodness which I was only too pleased to discover, I can’t wait!
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, crossing the International Date Line and arriving before they left. They picked up their van and had 48 hours before they were due on stage in Seattle. This was the tone of the tour. As Barrie Cadogan explains, “We were totally out of our minds, driving through blazing sun and pitch black for days trying to eat up the miles. Your head starts playing tricks.”
Released on 3rd June, new single I.5.C.A. was inspired by these hallucinatory drives up and down the Interstate 5 Highway and will be available as a limited edition 7″ vinyl and as a download. To preorder the limited vinyl click here. Listen above.
