More Info

"Barbara are so up my street ... really tight songwriting, very poptastic!” - Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy)

Barbara are wonderful. I love their songs and their humour. We need more Barbara in our lives!” - Chris Difford

"Barbara are an insanely talented band with an innate sense of melody and arrangement ... The ambitious scope and toe tapping immediacy of their sound belies their tender years." - Phil Jupitus

Taking their lead musically from an eclectic set of influences that range from Glam Pop to Broadway, Barbara make classic, irresistible pop music with a literary and intellectual approach.

Whilst the influence on the music is noticeably American, Barbara’s lyrics are quintessentially British, infused with the inquisitive, satirical spirit of Harold Pinter, George Orwell and Ray Davies.

In 2022, Barbara were handpicked by Neil Hannon to support The Divine Comedy on their UK tour, and a year later they played fourteen shows in support of Haircut One Hundred.

This spring (2024), Barbara will be appearing as special guests of Paul Weller on his UK tour who again, hand-picked them to perform.

For fans of The Kinks, The Lemon Twigs, Electric Light Orchestra and The Feeling.
