In March 2016, BARQ released their debut single “Gentle Kind of Lies” to critical acclaim and a surge of media attention. The track was picked up Spotify’s new music playlist in both the UK and Brazil, as well as being included on IASCA’s playirish USA, and two of Goldenplec’s Goldenstereo playlists.
BARQ have been one of the most talked about bands in Ireland over the last 12 months, wowing crowds at a number of leading festivals across the country. Lead singer, Jess Kav, featured on the front cover of Ireland’s premier music-magazine, Hot Press, and BARQ have since been included in The Irish TImes “50 People to watch in 2017”, Goldenplec’s “Plec Picks 2017”, Nialler9’s “Best Songs of 2016”, as well as being one of 13 Irish acts in RTÉ 2FM’s 100 most played artists of 2016. BARQ are now preparing for their first tour, with dates in the UK and Ireland, before travelling to Toronto for Canadian Music Week in April.
BARQ, without a doubt, have hit the ground running since their debut release. Expect big things from this four-piece in 2017.
