Little Bark releases a new music video for the single POLY 

Premiere on CHEESE ON TOAST here: http://cheeseontoast.co.nz/2015/05/14/little-bark-shares-music-video-for-poly-cheese-on-toast-exclusive-premiere/

Directed by Stef Animal (The Golden Awesome), who also co-produced the album, the video is a dream like collage of 3am break up imagery: the stars, the moon, red roses. All with the healing power of dramatic 80’s pop music carrying through the night and into a hopeful dawn.

12 SEPTEMBER 2014

LITTLE BARK'S NEW ALBUM, USB, HAS BEEN REVIEWED BY NEW ZEALAND'S LARGEST DAILY NEWSPAPER, THE NEW ZEALAND HERALD, AND HAS BEEN GIVEN A 4.5/5!!

"With a wide palette of vintage synths, deep, lush bass lines, drum tracks steeped in the 80s, and a cinematic approach, Little Bark (aka Sophie Burbery) has created a sprawling, assertive record that manages to be jubilant and tense, shadowy and punchy. It's a timeless piece of work that echoes the kind of grand, emotive, electronic statement M83 and Fever Ray proposed, though it's brasher than both."

PRE-ORDER LIMITED EDITION PURPLE VINYL HERE

If David Lynch had directed Miami Vice, this would be the soundtrack

Drawing on influences from Vangelis to modern day experimental electro such as Fever Ray, Little Bark has created her own Unique Sonic Broadcast with her album USB set for release on August 29th 2014 

This week she’s giving another teaser of the album with the release of two new singles ‘Hmmm’ and the instrumental ‘New Day’

Listen to the new songs on the below links:

‘Hmmm’ https://soundcloud.com/little-bark/hmmm

‘New Day’ https://soundcloud.com/little-bark/new-day 

Following her critically acclaimed self-released debut Hope Is Rubbery in 2011, Little Bark has spent the last three years readying herself for her sophomore album USB (Unique Sonic Broadcast). Co-produced with long-term collaborator Stef Animal (The Golden Awesome, Mestar), the synth-based album is laid out like a film soundtrack with a mixture of synth pop songs interspersed with lush instrumentals. 

With two singles from the album already released, including ‘Modern Love’ which featured in Alt-Radio charts, and ‘Arpreggiator’ which was handpicked as part of the NZ Music Month’s Becks New New Zealand music project. The video for the new track ‘Hmmm’ features a visual generated from the colour palette of the USB album cover and can be watched here.
