Bar St James reimagines cornerstone musical moments as if they happened today. More than covers, the band thinks of these inspiring gems – some well known, some much less – as emotional triggers, imbuing the songs with fresh new life. A guilty pleasure of producer Charlie T, Bar St James really shines thanks to the intimate velvety voice of Gabriela Flores, and the delicate guitar notes of acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Henry Franci.
Working between New York and Buenos Aires, the trio enlisted Matheus Antunes in Sao Paulo for the final mix, drawn to his mastery of deep, sensual sounds. Their first EP – Drive Glycerine, and Destroy Everything, a play on the names of the songs included – will be available worldwide on July 7.
