BARQDublin cross-genre four piece

What you may need to know…

01. It seems remiss of us to have not mentioned Dublin aggro-soul outfit BARQ by this point in the column’s existence. We’d like to apologise for this oversight.

02. Releasing debut single Gentle Kind of Lies in March, the band have seemingly exploded onto the wider Irish music picture in the second half of last year, including a near-complete collection of independent festival appearances in the summer and prominent Spotify playlisting.

03. Streaming above is their first extended-player, covering all of their singles released last year. Pay-what-you-want download, also.

04. They’re heading on a full tour of the country alongside HAWK and Harbouring Oceans in the latter half of this month – full rundown here.

Thoughts: Massive sounds, massive voice, massive tunes. Loads in here to keep loads of different music fans happy.

    Saw these guys on Saturday at the Strike Sounds gig, they were excellent and Jess’s voice is out of this world!

    I, a little drunkenly, said hello to Jess a few weeks ago in The Bowery. She was so lovely and introduced herself to me.

    I love their sound and am looking forward to the album.

    I was lucky enough to see these four a few times last year – they are destined for great things.
    They have talent, passion, great attitude, with a raw edgy sound that lets in a smooth jazz feel every now and then. Really great live too!
