The Barr Brothers “Queens of the Breakers” – Listen

The Barr Brothers have shared the title track from their forthcoming album which is worryingly described as “anthemic” but is actually a lovely very melodic piece of music. The album, the band’s first in three years, will be released on October 13th, and they have just announced too that they’ll be supporting The War On Drugs for a mostly sold out 17 date run of UK and European dates in November.  ‘Queens of the Breakers’ takes its name from The Breakers, a Vanderbilt mansion perched atop Newport, Rhode Island’s rocky coastline, where as teenagers, brothers Brad and Andrew Barr were part of a mischievous group of friends that would descend upon Newport dressed in their mothers’ clothing. Kind of WH Davies meets Danny La Rue.
