Brooklyn-based multi-cultural band Barrie kept us swooning throughout 2018 via a series of vibrant singles, and they're bouncing off that momentum straight into their debut album. They've revealed that their first LP is called Happy To Be Here, was co-produced by band leader Barrie Lindsay and Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Solange, Grizzly Bear) and is coming out on May 3rd via Winspear.

Barrie have also shared the first single from the album, 'Clovers', a song that continues to see them jettison into impossibly dense-yet-light soundscapes. They beautifully blend together stately piano with injections of multi-textured synths, appearing from all angles to create a weightless atmosphere. Barrie Lindsay's voice flows perfectly into this setting, starting with some demure self-criticism, before being lifted off into an astral realm, with the squelching synthesizers providing her with boosters into a place of happiness and freedom.

Check out 'Clovers' below.
