Barry are South London’s quintessential queer guitar pop band and they are here to make you dance your socks off. Members Bart, Helen, Kathy and Mark made the leap from spectators to creators in mid 2018, as an extension of their life long collective obsessions with music. Inspired by a similarly named antipodean band, Barry take a multi vocal approach to classic jangle pop and make it their own with tales of public urination, gentrification and not giving up! Delve into the world of four gay ‘grown ups’ living in a city that’s becoming increasingly difficult to inhabit freely.

This sounds like it could have been released in any of the last 5-6 decades. Solid, tight songs that warm the soul. I’m picking up on a wide diversity of sounds, from The Pixies to Blondie. Really glad to have stumbled across these guys! Mister Anthrope
