Barleycove’s latest single, “Forget You,” is a mesmerizing blend of vintage ambiance and modern groove that offers listeners a refreshing sonic experience. Comprising the talents of Laura Jones on vocals, guitar, and keys and Tim Trammell on percussion, this duo brings together a range of influences, including Fleetwood Mac, Damien Rice, Patty Griffin, Tame Impala, and more.
Produced by Britt Barker of Catch the Rise at The Orange Room studio, “Forget You” draws inspiration from contemporary synth acts like Cannons, Tame Impala, Portishead, and Shaed, resulting in a track that seamlessly bridges the gap between nostalgia and the present.
The song starts with somber and peaceful tunes immediately tranquilizing the aura in ripples. The sparkly, fast-paced percussion that follows adds momentum to the track. And you’re drawn into the rhythmic groove of the genreless Barleycove universe, where each note feels like a carefully chosen brushstroke on a musical canvas.
The imagery of a vintage bar ambiance permeates your mind with calming and invigorating nostalgia and charm.
Meanwhile, Laura Jones’ vocals enchant you with a voice rich and thick in flavor, carrying an alluring, siren-like quality that captivates the listener. As she sings, you can feel the emotion and depth behind the ranging control in her soulful voice.
“Forget You” manages to be both melancholic and groovy, introspective yet inviting. Whether you are here to relate or finger the sensation, “Forget You” by Barleycove is a must-listen that will leave you hitting repeat.
