Barry Can't Swim When Will We Land?
Barry Can’t Swim’s highly anticipated debut album will finally be here on October 20th. Those who have liked Barry’s output to date will love this full-length, it showcases both sides of his artistry - his ability to write dancefloor-ready party bangers and also his more downtempo, piano-led pieces. These two sides will also come to life throughout 2023 and beyond on stage, with a stacked diary of both traditional DJ shows and his very first full band live shows. Every album track was written and crafted with it’s position within the full-length piece of work in mind - it’s an album designed as such, rather than a collection of songs thrown together. Having worked on the album over the past two years, Barry has been finessing the tracks whilst bringing a range of collaborators into the studio with him and testing out snippets during his DJ sets and gauging crowd reactions. His sound mesh of various electronic styles mixed in with influences from around the world has won over crowds globally, not to mention within the media and his peers, with co-signs from across the electronic music universe. Artists who Barry has been collaborating with over the creation of his album include BBC Sound of 2023 nominee Biig Piig, Piri, Confidence Man, Lapsley, Surya Sen, Charlotte Plank, Memphis LK and INJI. The album will be available on several striking physical formats as well, having previously sold out every physical release Barry has previously released. Barry has been working on a wide creative vision with designer Rory Dewar (Fontaines DC, Loyle Carner, Jessie Ware) which will tie-in all the visual elements across his album, live and merchandise sides.
