Los Angeles-based instrumental rock outfit BARROWS is currently embarked on their tour across the entire US, delivering the dynamic and entrancing textures of their cinematic new LP, Obsidion.
Formed in Syracuse by Jim Leonard and Richy Epolito, before the two relocated to Los Angeles, BARROWS recruited guitarist Ryo Higuchi and bassist Brock Haltiwanger to flesh out the live lineup. Having proven themselves to be a formidable force in the realm of exploratory rock through two prior albums – 2011’s Imprecari Island, and 2014’s Red Giant – BARROWS reaches further into the depths of consciousness on Obsidion. Boasting driving passages amidst massive expanses of powerful cosmic and atmospheric exploration. Obsidion was recorded and mixed by Sean Foye, Jim Leonard, and Richy Epolito, mastered by Eroc from the legendary Krautrock band Grobschnitt, and features artwork and photography by Alexandre Souêtre.
BARROWS’ singular sound seamlessly blends elements of prog, space, kraut, and psych, citing influences of early King Crimson and Pink Floyd to John Carpenter and Goblin.
Following a series of five weekly residency shows in their hometown through all of May, BARROWS is currently out on an intense US tour in support of Obsidion, which sees them traversing most of the country playing at a total of thirty shows through July 1st.
