Seattle-based trio Barcelona make passionate, melodic music that mixes components of dance, electronica, and indie pop. Produced in 2005, Barcelona grew out of business lead vocalist/songwriter Brian Fennel’s single material (highlighted on 2005’s Basic safety Music) after he matched with guitarist/vocalist Chris Bristol and drummer Rhett Stonelake. Originally, the trio centered on a far more acoustic indie pop audio, a strategy they showcased on the 2007 debut, Absolutes, and 2012 sophomore work, NEARLY Yours. In 2013, Barcelona released the one “History,” which uncovered a far more synthesizer-heavy, dance-rock-oriented audio. Some EP’s collectively referred to as Melodrama is defined for discharge in 2014.
