The Barr Brothers Live

‘Hideous Glorious’ was next and as the second song from the new album I was hoping that more of them would be played on the night. I was not disappointed. The song moves along slowly and intensely with Brad’s expressive and note-perfect vocal and his great guitar work. Accompanying Brad were a keyboardist/guitarist, guitarist/double bass player, drummer and another keyboardist who also provided wonderful backing vocals throughout. Another new and very atmospheric song, ‘Look Before It Changes’, arrived with Brad’s voice almost a whisper and reaching very notes. Then came title album track, ‘Queens Of The Breakers’, which flowed at medium pace and beautifully backed by a solid bass rhythm courtesy of Andrew.

The setlist was peppered with brand new songs (eight in all) but also included favourites from the band’s first and second albums. The demands for an encore were unrelenting so back the band came to perform three more songs including two legacy songs and the charming ‘Song That I Heard’ from the new album that reminded me of a song by Simon and Garfunkel. The Barr Brothers could well be set for the kind of worldwide growth experienced by The National. They certainly deserve it!
