Barrie, the musical vehicle of NYC’s Barrie Lindsay, has released their first new song for a little while – and it seems to be a sign of much more to come, as she also announces live dates around the world for early 2022. “Dig” arrives after a tumultuous period for Barrie, who lost her father but found and married her wife – and that sudden change in fortunes is where we find her on the song.
The new song is called “Dig” and finds Barrie expressing sheer joy – both lyrically and sonically. While she puts a fine point on her feelings in the heartfelt yelps of “where did you come from” and “I can’t get enough of you” that litter the track, the emotions of “Dig” are deepened by the instrumental delights it beholds. The introduction of handclaps and wordless chants immediately puts us in a festive mood, and Barrie then tactfully interweaves tactile tones like wobbling mandolin-like strings, blocky beats and cortex-tickling synths. Entirely self-produced, “Dig” is a calling card for her abilities as an all-round musical force.
The video for “Dig” was made with Robert Kolodny; take a look below or find the song on streaming platforms.
