BARBAROSSA provide us with 'Chemical Campfires', a multi layered &
moving album of widescreen folk & brittle, inventive pop produced by Simon
Lord of Garden/Simian fame. There's definitely a warm, bubbly soul

electro-acoustic template of progressive folk/pop. Surely one for fans of Simian,
King Creosote & Tunng, this is fresh, with wonderful vocal harmonies
& feeling as it is in debt to the more traditional elements of acoustic pop.

unveil well rounded releases such as this absorbing & emotive 10 track
