Barrie – “Saturated”

Barrie – “Saturated”

Next month, Barrie are releasing their debut album, Happy To Be Here. They’ve released a couple of songs from it so far already, including “Clovers” and “Darjeeling,” and now, after a great reception at this year’s SXSW, the New York-based group are putting out a new track called “Saturated.”

This one’s a little more low-key than the first two singles, riding in on a cool wave. It’s a nice twist on a traditional obsession song, the idea of being completely enveloped with and overwhelmed by all the feelings inside. “This song is pretty pure,” Barrie Lindsay said in a statement.

“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.”
