There’s a lot to like about new indie pop Brooklyn collective Barrie. Lead by frontwoman Barrie Lindsay, the five some hail from all over the world, with members from London, Brazil as well as a criss-cross of the US. They’ve been delighting us over the last few months with a series of excellent singles and now it’s finally timed for their debut LP. Lindsay takes a fresh, dreamy approach to classic pop that’s at its most captivating on their debut record “Happy to Be Here”. Awash with major-key synth hooks, and tight, discerning lyrics about moving to New York and finding your people, Happy to be Here is a record you won’t want to miss.

Co-produced by Lindsay and Snail Mail/Solange knob twiddler Jake Aron, their debut album Happy To Be Here is a joyful collision, a carnival of sound and an awful lot of fun.

This Brooklyn based five-piece Barrie have released their debut album, Happy to Be Here, this week. Barrie’s leader Barrie Lindsay wrote the album’s songs late at night alone in her apartment, plays various instruments on the album (guitar, piano, synth, and bass), and co-produced the album with Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Solange, Grizzly Bear). But Barrie is not simply a solo project, the band also features Dominic Apa, Spurge Carter, Noah Prebish, and Sabine Holler, who had to record her backing vocals remotely from Germany due to visa issues. The band members are from all over, having previously lived in Boston, Baltimore, Upstate New York, London, and São Paulo via Berlin, but came together in New York. Barrie’s pleasing dream pop/indie pop that would appeal to fans of Yumi Zouma, among others.

“The scaffolding of this album is moving to New York and finding these people that make up the band,” Barrie said in a press release announcing the album. “We’re very different, but we cover each other’s gaps personally and creatively, and are eager to learn from each other.”

Brooklyn five-piece Barrie are releasing their debut album, “Happy to Be Here”, on May 3rd via Winspear. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Saturated.” Previously they shared its lead single, “Clovers” Then they shared another song from the album, “Darjeeling,” via a video for the song.

Barrie’s leader Barrie Lindsay had this to say about the song in a press release: “This song is pretty pure…. It came out fully formed, sounding mostly like how it sounds now. It’s minimal and exposed, kind of vulnerable but in a confident way. I want people to relate to that state of pure, open saturation. I want this song to feel like a crush.”
