RELEASE DATE: 7th October 2021
Words: Dan Smith
The first song to be released from his debut EP, ‘Slipping Away’ is actually the first release by London based artist Kieran Barber.
Originating in my home town of Hull, Keiran otherwise going by Backstreets is a solo project influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty. Written, performed, produced and mastered by Kieran in his bedroom, ‘Slipping Away’ is one fantastic effort for the first time out.
Tantalising the eardrums with mesmerising guitar riffs and a synth backdrop, the tune is as relaxing as it is groovy. Adding in those harmonica solos with some Pearl Jam-esque vocals, I for one, can not wait for the whole EP to come out!
