Listen to the new The Barr Brothers single – It Came To Me!

The driving, ecstatic ‘It Came to Me’ begins with a squall of guitar and a rush of drums, quickly formed into a mean, bluesy riff textured with classical acoustic harp.  Brad Barr’s voice distorts to a rasp, telling the tale of a Zen-like quest for answers to the questions of the universe.

Headmaster Kevin Spacey keeps them all together with a solid mix of benevolence and belligerence.   //   Special mention should also be made about the car chase scenes. Without any noticeable computer generated ...
