TEXT FROM PRESS RELEASE:

“Love You is the first single from Little Barrie’s second album Stand Your Ground and comes out on January 15 2007 through Genuine Recordings. A restless confession of desire, Love You digs in its elbows and pushes its way to the front. With skiffling drums, a popping bass line and a crackling lead guitar, it’s indicative of the more urgent rockabilly blues featured on the band’s new album.

It is a sound made all the more vital for the renewed strength of Barrie’s song writing. CD b-side If I Don’t Have To Answer encapsulates a theme of defiance and resistance running through their new material. The demo version for I Wonder Whether – unavailable elsewhere – is also included on the CD single whilst the download format includes the DJ Nu Mark remix of Burned Out previously only available on the Greener Pastures 7”. There is a toughness to Little Barrie these days; new drummer Billy Skinner has joined forces with frontman Barrie Codogan and bassist Lewis Wharton, to produce a newly energised rattling rhythm ‘n’ blues. And Little Barrie have every reason to be energised… a year of drummer changes and producer switches has been emphatically overcome with a collection of “tough yet tender” songs that make up the new LP.

They’ve backed this up with a clutch of headlining dates, a tour with Primal Scream and by beating Lily Alien into the Japanese album charts. They mark the release of their second album with a headline show at London’s Scala on February 22nd. The album Stand Your Ground is released on Jan 29th.”
