Listen: Barbarossa - 'Broken Beauty'
Barbarossa is set to release his new album 'Lier' at the end of this month, and he has treated us to another snippet with new track 'Broken Beauty'.
It is the third track release so far from his upcoming album 'Lier', and provides us with another beautiful insight in what we have to come from him. It's sound is haunting and terrifying but also emotionally pleasing at the same time. You can see this track sitting perfectly on a Danny Boyle film's soundtrack or something similar. Creating that individual moment in the film that people remember, the emotional attachment to something visual via music. Like Moby's 'Porcelain' in The Beach, or 'Born Slippy' in Trainspotting. It draws you in hypnotically without you knowing, and by the time you noticed you involved in this world that Barbarossa has made for us.
The full album 'Lier' will be released on Memphis Industries on March 30th
He will play a run of shows across Europe, including a string of UK dates including a headline show in London.
