Barcelona Play the Late Show Tomorrow Night at Mercury LoungeOctober 3rd, 2014
Brian Fennell (vocals and guitar), Branden Cate (keys and vocals) and Rhett Stonelake (drums and vocals)—have been making harmonious, melodic rock as Barcelona for nearly a decade. Their debut full-length, Absolutes, was released in 2007 and rereleased two years later. Per Absolute Punk, “Absolutes is a stunning movement of intelligent, atmospheric, and hey!, catchy pop music.” Their follow-up, Not Quite Yours (stream it below), out in 2012, involved more of the Seattle trio’s soulful, sultry rock. But Barcelona (above, performing “Fall in Love” for Audiotree Live) have moved in a different direction with the R&B-inflected Melodrama, three EPs released earlier this year “that explore the landscape of learning to love and be loved.” See them play the late show tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. Arrive early to catch the Philly trio Bel Heir.
