Barrie – “Clovers”

Throughout 2018, the Brooklyn-based band Barrie have put out a string of warm and inviting pop songs, including “Canyons,” “Tal Uno,” and “Michigan.” Today, they’re announcing their debut album, Happy To Be Here, which the group put together over the last year.

The Barrie Lindsay-led project is kicking things off with “Clovers,” which is grounded by a bed of wriggling synths and plinking keys. Lindsay’s airy vocals operate at a remove: “Clovers in my eyes, the way the light falls on the bus on the way home,” she sings. “Clovers in my eyes, trying to stay awake, trying to stay away.”
