"...a powerful essence, layered with energetic sonics..." - Nialler9

For Fans of... Thundercat, Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kiayote

Inspired by the courage and resilience of the Repeal The Eighth movement, Sassy Mouth is propelled by the soaring power of BARQ's frontwoman Jess Kav’s vocals, as it builds to a funk-fuelled climax of intent. Earthquakes, on the other hand, is a thoughtful reflection on the breakdown of relationships. With a soulful groove akin to the likes of Hiatus Kiayote, it's an empowering and impassioned anthem.

Erupting into your ears...
