Introducing: Barcode Angels – Angels Forever & 3 Questions

Barcode Angels is a band of four friends from New York City. Our debut album “Angels Forever” was written by roommates Henry and Finn. It was then recorded and brought to life with the help of Noah and Ava. We hope you like our ~texture rock~.

I am so surprised by how great the music we are recently sharing on our blog is. I am not sure if we have improved in finding the best gems or if there is just high-quality music all around us. I have just recently discovered this NY-based band and I am loving their newest album. It is a really nice blend of indie-rock, lo-fi rock with some indie-pop vibes. It feels very avant-garde and I am loving also the experimental approach to the songs. I am really enjoying the bands trying to blend more genres into their song making the sound palette more colorful. The album is amazing and you should listen to it from the start to the end. I just wished it was released on cassette, it would fit the album very much. I have played in mind thinking about releasing it myself, but we have 4 cassette releases already in plans (you can follow our plans here).

I am loving the name of this band, really nice creative one.

The listening experience from this album was so great and I cannot wait to get back to it. The list of great albums is growing more and more…

I have also talked to the band and asked them our 3 questions:

What inspired you to start making music and what keeps you making music?

If life keeps going, then we have to keep making music. Finn is on his way to starting medical school and Henry is a school teacher, so working on music is how we balance our lives and keep our souls alive. Can’t stop won’t stop xoxo :0

What was the most challenging thing in your music (artistic) path?

It was hard to bring these songs from their raw acoustic guitar versions to more interesting and complete songs. We spent a lot of time deliberating about how simple or complicated each track should be, but honestly, most of the progress we made came in short bursts of inspiration. We probably won’t stop writing our songs at home on acoustic though… it’s too fun.

What would you dream to do if anything was possible?

If we could, we would go to a beautiful village once a year surrounded by fresh fruit and lox bagel sandwiches and cute animals, and top-quality recording equipment. Then go back to our normal lives to get inspiration for the next album.
