BARBAROSA – “MOLLY & HER FRIENDS”
A Spill Exclusive Music Premiere
Toronto’s Barbarosa will release their second album Eye of the Rabbit on November 25, 2016. The album’s new single, ‘Molly & Her Friends’ leads off with a brisk drum beat and grooves along with rapid-fire lyrics and a staccato earworm of a chorus.
Lyrically, ‘Molly & Her Friends’ explores the complex fragmentation of identity that can take place after sexual abuse, drawing from singer-songwriter Patrick Beedling’s experiences as a psychotherapist in Toronto.
Originally formed in St. Catharines and now based in Toronto, the four-piece band is currently comprised of Patrick Beedling (vocals, guitar), Calum Beedling (piano, vocals), Joseph Stracuzzi (bass guitar, percussion) and Jonny Smith (drums).
In support of the new album, Barbarosa will play release shows on November 26 at Mahtay Cafe & Lounge in St. Catharines, with Dylan Menzie, and on December 8 at Adelaide Hall in Toronto, with Whitney Pea.
“The song definitely tackles some weighty subject matter,” Beedling says. ‘In spite of that I really believe that it’s a pop song, and that the music and lyrics are uplifting.’ – Patrick Beeding
