REVIEW: "step inside," the funky, fresh new release from electropop duo barley passable
It's impossible to deny "Step Inside," the newest track from Australian indie-electronica duo Barley Passable, a quick shimmy at your desk upon first listen.
Undeniably one of the best tracks to be released this week, "Step Inside" effectively utilizes and seamlessly blends electronica, pop, and the very distinct sound of groovy horns from the 70s in order to craft a track you won't soon forget. It's very reminiscent of Daft Punk circa Random Access Memories.
According to the band, “Revisiting old memories of young love, the song reflects on how perspective can shape how you come out of any situation. Telling a story of how being caught up in the moment of a relationship that turns sour can become so consuming that you lose all perspective. It is only with time that you can truly let go, move forward and hope to learn that where you are now is better off because of your past experiences.” This track has been three years in the making - it's one of the first songs the two ever wrote together - and truly captures the band's sonic journey, the ways in which they've grown and learned from their partnership over the years.
"Step Inside" is not a track you're going to want to miss, and Barley Passable are a pair you'll want to keep an eye on. The tune can be streamed on our Weekly Roundup playlist along with all of the other fantastic releases we've curated this week.
