Barbara – These New Communications
Combine soothing vocals, fine harmonies and riff-filled intervals and what you get is Barbara’s newest single ‘These New Communications’, it’s a festive and light-hearted sounding track with an eccentric musical structure. Barbara most obviously doesn’t draw within the lines, they re-draw the lines wherever they fancy. Barbara isn’t, as we had assumed, a female singer songwriter, it’s brothers Henry and John Tydeman that write glorious and sun-drenched tracks that sound like they have been created in 1970’s California. ‘These New Communications’ shares Barbara’s perceptive, witty examination of the dark side of social media and the internet in general. We’d say that the future should consist of us all communicating through music, as Barbara does it so impressively!
