Eternally singable and likable fellows, Barcelona have a dark, quiet, romantic quality about them. Twangy reverberated guitars dance over jangly acoustic ballads about the uncertainties of life’s larger roadblocks, while a reserved rhythm section nods along behind lead singer Brian Fennell’s easy tenor.
With two releases under their belt, Barcelona took their opportunity at the Factory to play some material that is set to be on their upcoming release. The date is still undecided. Originally describing themselves as piano-rock, the Seattle foursome have dropped the keys and gone for a more folky ambiance.
You can see early cuts from their album on the livestream channel: www.livestream.com/thesessionsfactory.
