Oozing with charm, Brooklyn based band Barrie’s debut album Happy to Be Here is a glittering pop treat perfect for the beginning of the summer. Melodic synths paint a nostalgic landscape for vocalist Barrie’s voice to delicately float over. Though the band is named after its frontwoman, the eclecticism of the band member’s background shines through in their sprawling sound. With members who have lived everywhere from Brazil to Australia, they leap beyond their New York background and craft a collage of sounds.
