The Barr Brothers – Whelans – 24th October 2014.
The Barr Brothers are a four piece from Montreal that are visiting our shores in October. Enjoy ‘Even the Darkness has Arms’ below.
Montreal’s The Barr Brothers are pleased to announce details of their new album, ‘Sleeping Operator’, out on 6th October 2014 through Secret City Records.
The group, featuring brothers Brad on guitar/vocals and Andrew on drums, classical harpist Sarah Pagé, and pianist/bassist Andrès Vial, recorded 40 tracks in the process of making this record. The 13 songs on ‘Sleeping Operator’ explore the far reaches of folk, laced with West African influences, hypnotic modernist pulsing and beyond.
While the record extends into cinematic and other-worldly territories, it maintains a campfire-like intimacy throughout.
