HUM12 is a double A-side from Barringtone available on 7” vinyl (250 only) or download.

Barringtone are: Barry Dobbin, formerly of Clor, (Guitar and Vox), Connan Cooledge (Bass) and Boomer Opperman (Drums) – they create an avant-pop/rock deconstructionist sound that weaves along an intrepid path. A heady mix of power pop, anthemic rock riffs, guitar/synth wig-outs and off-kilter vox are enthusiastically pulled apart and reformed with unapologetic vigour.

“Feverhead/Foxes & Brimstone” showcases the benefits of their eclectic approach, balancing the complexities of out-there prog with the direct motorik drive and brevity of pure melodic pop.

Track listing:

A Feverhead 3:02

AA Foxes & Brimstone 4:51

WAV streams here until the 27th February for your listening pleasure.

Barringtone’s influences include: Brian Eno, Todd Rundgren, Deerhoof, R Stevie Moore, Bowie, Neu, Sparks, Devo, Cluster and old school jungle.

Early reviews have drawn comparison with: Zappa, Buggles, Cardiacs, SF Sorrow era-Pretty Things, They Might Be Giants, Joe Meek and XTC.

A Barringtone live show is a maelstrom of melody, power & control. They mix the delicate, the intricate and the complex with krautgroove power, time jarring discipline, and elevating crunch.

NME described Barry Dobbin’s former band Clor as “Retro-futurist, laboratory pop” awarding their single eponymously titled 2005 album the No.1 spot in their ‘100 Greatest Albums You’ve Never Heard’ shortly after their demise which was described as leaving a uniquely Clor-shaped hole in the all too generic world of guitar/electronic music – a band for whom “musical differences appeared to be the whole point.”.
