Montreal quartet The Barr Brothers are gearing up for the release of their sophomore record entitled Sleeping Operator, due out October 7th. The band is lead by brothers Andrew and Brad Barr with Sarah Page and Andres Vial contributing their multi-instrumental skills to the group.
Today The Barr Brothers share “Love Ain’t Enough” as the first taste of the forthcoming LP. Here’s is what singer Brad Barr had to say:
Love Ain’t Enough is the song that happens when you give up on giving up on love. Either one has some kind of epiphany, or it becomes too exhausting to fight it anymore. The title is kind of misleading, as it draws from the preceding state of mind, one in which the heart is less open, insatiable. This song is optimism. We were inspired by Steve Reich to create a pulsing bed of harp, marimba, banjo, dulcimer, and other percussion, over which the guitars and vocals can rise and fall.
