Edinburgh born, London Based producer Barry Can’t Swim returns to Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour with the announcement of his EP More Content.
The four-track record is a unique blend of skillfully crafted electronic production mixed with Barry’s trademark Jazz inspired strings and keys, channelling the fluidity and flow of a live performance.
Most noticeably opening single “God Is The Space Between Us (ft. Taite Imogen)” is a continuation of one of Barry’s older releases “Lone Raver”. Speaking on this, Barry states: “They were both written in the same setting, being isolated during lockdown, and feeling reflective. I wanted to retain some sounds and elements of ‘Lone Raver’ in this song because I felt like they’re part of the same experience.”
Elsewhere on the record we hear nostalgic and melancholic tones on “Can We Still Be Friends?” featuring fellow producer Laurence Guy. The EP comes to an all consuming high on the 4th and final track “Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore” – aptly named after a 1999 rave documentary by Mark Leckey, capturing Britain’s underground club scene.
Barry starts his tour in the coming months with stops in Edinburgh and London, alongside debut shows in Portugal, Italy, Ibiza and the US. He’ll also be hitting a number of UK festivals this summer including Lost Village, Sundown Festival and Yurt City.
