Hailing from New York, Tim Barr has had a prolific career in music, including time with the band Silverbird and a stint playing bass for Lana Del Ray. But now Barr is going solo, a transition heralded by his new single 'First Kiss.'

The ominous track, which is supported by an eerie video directed by Michael Maxxis, moves at a controlled pace, allowing ample time for the song's forbidding energy to wash over the listener. At the center of it all is Barr's beautiful voice, delivering the track's dark and dreary lyrics.

"'First Kiss' is about secrets and the brutality of love," says Barr. "It is that first moment where a dysfunctional relationship begins and all else fails."
