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.” Their forthcoming album is inspired by these hallucinatory drives up and down the Interstate 5 Highway.
Little Barrie wanted the new music to reflect some of the chaos and beauty of that time, but do something sonically different. The aim is 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.
Having recently penned the theme tune to Better Call Saul, the band’s music has been synced across adverts, films and TV shows worldwide. Anyone who has witnessed the band’s live performances over the past few years will testify to just how tight, accomplished and telepathic each element has become. The trio have been personally invited to support artists such as The Stone Roses, Charles Bradley, Dinosaur Jnr, Kasabian and Primal Scream.
