An EP a long time in the making. The Together EP is the culmination of 18 months of relationships, sessions and normal life. Barley Passable are proud to release this body of work that pieces together all of the collaborations they’ve had in one place.
The focus single By My Side ft. Amber Rose is dedicated to people you can spend eternity with, and whilst they all were drawing from different experiences in their lives, the love and joy they found spending time with their friends was clearly universal. Keeping in line with the theme, the band tapped Steelin Hearts to play some pedal steel on the track and it quickly became a 2nd feature. Produced and mixed by Kesmar (Lazy Wax), the song is a Sunday cruise reminiscent of French duo Air.
Following this release, the band will head to Europe for 8 weeks of writing and recording their next batch of music, before returning home in August for the to be announced headline shows.
The band have been playing non stop, playing alongside Ninajirachi at the Yours and Owls NYE party in Wollongong and supporting The Moving Stills as well as their own headline show for Great Southern Nights.Photo Credit: Roger Stonehouse
