Barbagallo: L'échappée

A sparkling piece of modern French psych from Barbagallo with the track L'échappée coming ahead of a new album.

While Julien Barbagallo is these days pretty well known as a member of Tame Impala, his work as a solo artist and as part of Aquaserge puts him at the centre of France's contemporary psyche scene.

The track comes from his forthcoming album Danse Dans Les Ailleurs, his third solo album, following 2016's Grand Chien and 2015's Amor de Lonh.

Unlike his earlier solo works, which were created on the road with Tame Impala, his new album was recorded in a studio. He chose to record in the Lot area of France, in a studio located in a converted historic building in a rural setting, a former medieval farm where Nino Ferrer lived and worked in the 1970s.

He said: "I wanted a place that would encourage contemplation and whose atmosphere would leave a subtle mark on the recordings.

"The Barberine studio in the Lot district of France met my expectations all contributed to the magi I needed to record those new songs."

Barbagallo have four live dates in the UK next month, with shows in London, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle.
