Fall in Love;
Barcelona is a Seattle long time indie rock band and has just released their new EP series ‘The Melodrama,” which is an exploration that expands beyond their usual music to a wildly different territory ranging from synth-heavy retro-pop anthems to thumping, athmospheric R&B slow jams!
“We grew up mostly in the mid to late-90s, so there are lot of nods to the pop and R&B of that era on these EPs, along with the amazing, moody anthems that came out of the late 80s and early 90s,” Fennell says, adding that he drew on the unabashed sexuality expressed in the music of artists like Prince and Madonna for inspiration. “It’s music we heard on our parents’ radios growing up that we hated at the time, but now realize is written on our hearts, and we won’t fight it. We just let ourselves fall into it.”- Barcelona
