Max Bastow Barbarian create a brilliant fusion of styles, combining a sprawling dream-like sound with a confident beat and probing lyrics. Night Blooms explores new, aggressively dark territory for them, delving into funk roots along the way. Favorite track: Pheremoans.

Travis Button Barbarian came back to me through an email and a time when I had followed them, followed by forgotten about them. Not sure why because after a revisit to their catalog, it is top notch! And I have a feeling this new record will be nothing short of greatness even if only to judge it by this badass cover art!

Pamela Hope This music feeds the soul & sets you free; absolutely love this band. I had a chance to see them live in San Diego at a sold out show& had the best time!!Packed but everyome was having such a great time dancing & singing along.

Not only are the lyrics pretty dope, but when the music comes all together, they make unanimous sounds that seem to transcend time.

After opening for #Articmonkeys , they finally started obtaing the awareness and publicty they deserved.

Last Call Withdraw( "im
doing all those things we promised we would do; but not doing them with you. [...]All the drugs and the booze make you never want to leave your own room.)

Pheremoans ("My pheremones, they'll make you moan, keep you up all night, make you snore in the morning. Take a bottle of wine, to explore your spine, undress your breast and start adoring.")

Brainbows ("I dunno...I dunno.,,i dunno what your thinkin all the timeee [...]you can do anything you want to; please dont behave.")

Barbarian San Diego, California

Night Blooms stirs up spirits of early post-punk in the lyrical vein of Nick Cave with the no brainer hooks and rhythms of Talking Heads 'Remain In The Light'.
