Barbudo – Pleasures EP (Released 8th September)

£6 – Limited Tape Coloured  Cassette and Download Code

Barbudo are a ‘Nu-eyed Soul’ group from the south coast town of

Havant, Portsmouth. Their sound combines mellow RnB tones with funky hooks, providing a sensual underwater sensation for live shows. Their songs are instantly memorable and engaging, helped by the band’s laid back disco feel and knack for intricate and soulful melodies. Brothers Ben and Harry write and record the music and are joined by a full band for shows.

“Pleasures” is an assured step in a new direction for Barbudo. The EP sees the band transition from psyche pop into a “Nu-eyed Soul” style; a self-appointed tagline that perfectly captures the mood of the EP. “Pleasures” combines elements of funk, soul and disco with charming synth sounds and infectious soulful melodies. The R’n’B feel of the tracks is complimented by lush harmonies and delicate keyboard tones, providing a fresh spin on classic ideals.  As usual, Barbudo have meticulously crafted the tracks in their home studio with the use of analogue equipment. This time, their efforts have produced a cosy, well-developed and exciting home-produced EP that invites listeners on a playful journey to an alchemy of familiar and new sounds.

The band’s second EP, ‘Pleasures’, released on the 8th September by Pie&Vinyl Records.
