The “pulsating psychedelia” (All Music) of LITTLE BARRIE made two splashes this week. First, AV Club premiered the “atmospheric” trip of “Eyes Were Young” here, while Flavorwire debuted the extended version of the Better Call Saul theme here. “Eyes Were Young” comes from the band’s “effortlessly exciting” (NME) album Shadow released via Tummy Touch on May 27, 2014.
According to frontman Barrie Cadogan (who fans may recognize from his work as Primal Scream‘s guitarist), the band wrote 17 potential themes for the show before doubling that amount in a three-day writing session. They’re heading out for a tour of Japan and Vietnam soon; dates are found here.
Little Barrie has released four critically acclaimed albums, spurring an impressive collection of global sync deals with US networks CBS and FOX. Their riffs and grooves have been featured in major commercial campaigns for Rimmel to the BBC‘s coverage of the Olympics. They’ve shared the stage with internationally renowned acts like Dinosaur Jr, The Stone Roses, and Kasabian while Barrie himself has performed with Mark Ronson, Morrissey, Spiritualized, and many others.
Little Barrie is guitarist/vocalist Barrie Cadogan, bassist Lewis Wharton, and drummer Virgil Howe – son of Yes’ Steve Howe. Shadow was released on Tummy Touch on May 27, 2014.
