“Tip It Over” is from Little Barrie’s 2012 release, King of the Waves, on Tummy Touch Records. The release has garnered accolades from publications around the globe including NME, The Sun, Magnet Magazine, and Relix. As Seattle’s The Stranger deftly said, “Once in a while, a modern band will ape retro gestures and just nail ’em so righteously that you toss out all your hard-won reservations about derivativeness and revel in the zealous, on-point replication of it all. That’s the case with Little Barrie.” The band is also prepared to set out on a brief West Coast headlining tour which starts today (tour dates below).
Over the past several years, the band has dedicated themselves to honing their musical reputations, doing everything from appearing live with Primal Scream to collaborations with the likes of Morrissey and Mark Ronson. Guitarist/frontman Barrie Cadogan and bassist/vocalist Lewis Wharton are joined on King of the Waves by the new addition of drummer/vocalist Virgil Howe, son of renowned Yes guitarist Steve Howe. The resulting sound calls to mind an old school Detroit rock ‘n’ roll showdown between Link Wray and The Creation, with the MC5 and Motown’s best in attendance to cheer both sides, and the omnipresent threat of a killer wave lurking just overhead. Longtime friend and collaborator Edwyn Collins co-produced the album with Little Barrie, just as he did their first, 2005’s We Are Little Barrie. Engineer Sebastian Lewsley also returns on King of the Waves, recorded at Collins’ West Heath Studios in North London.
