Track Of The Day :: Barcelos - Blairgowrie
Words: Sam Geary
Melbourne indie rockers Barcelos come up with an impressive debut in 'Blairgowrie', released yesterday (January 20).
The five-piece - James Medley, Lew, Bev, John, Will - have released previous tracks online over the last few years, but this big-sounding, DIY recorded and mastered by Joseph Carra (King Gizzard, Courtney Barnett) latest is their 'official' first drop.
With a touch of early Kings of Leon/U2 about them, Barcelos have created an atmospheric rock sound driven by strong guitars, sporadically tempered percussion, and frontman James Medley's precise, sharp vocals.
