Citing Gil Scott Heron and Nina Simone as her major influences, London based BarliI has crafted a stunningly fresh sound alongside the minimalist production of songwriting partner Ton Epoch. Together the pair successfully melds the subtleties of Air’s production with delicately soulful vocals, repeating a loving refrain over soothing harmonies and gentle waves of cymbals.
Aligned with the current canon of soul-infused British female pop, Barli is firmly at the forefront of 2015 artists to watch.
"Barli weaves beautiful harmonies through sweet electronic production and brings instant calm to those that lend their ears” - i-D
“Lying somewhere between electronic minimalism and neo-soul, Barli pulls down-tempos beat loops and darting synth lines into rank with an enviably commanding boom” - THE LINE OF BEST FIT
Barli tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Dec 2014.
