LITTLE BARRIE+ SPECIAL GUESTS

Little Barrie will release their highly anticipated 5th studio album Death Express on 7th July on Non Delux. Teaser single ‘Love or Love’ was released last December to critical acclaim. The forthcoming video has been directed by Douglas Hart (founding member of The Jesus & Mary Chain and video director for the likes of Paul Weller, Primal Scream, The Horrors and Toy).

The band’s fifth album packs a heavy punch, channelling the three members’ ferocious musical chops into a raw, DIY response to today’s atmosphere of confusion and division. There’s no political message, just lyrical food for thought, and some of the tautest, most incendiary grooves you’ll ever hear, enticing even dancefloor-shy listeners to hip-shake away their cares. High-octane meditations on surveillance paranoia (‘Copter’), devious policing at mass protests (‘Molotov Cop’) and greed (‘Vulture Swarm’) have rarely felt so irresistible to body movement.

The album’s genesis kick started, when Little Barrie were invited to provide incidental music for Better Call Saul, a spin-off series from hip TV phenomenon Breaking Bad, for which they’d already cut the theme tune. With no time to book a studio, they were forced to do it themselves, in their practice room. The response was favourable, and they began to feel that such DIY takes had a vibrant quality often lacking from ‘proper’ productions.
