Barringtone Short Info

Barringtone are: Barry Dobbin, formerly of Clor, (Guitar and Vox), Connan Cooledge (Bass) and Boomer Opperman (Drums) - they create an avant-pop/rock deconstructionist sound that weaves along an intrepid path. A heady mix of power pop, anthemic rock riffs, guitar/synth wig-outs and off-kilter vox are enthusiastically pulled apart and reformed with unapologetic vigour. "Feverhead/Foxes & Brimstone" showcases the benefits of their eclectic approach, balancing the complexities of out-there prog with the direct motorik drive and brevity of pure melodic pop.

NME described Barry Dobbin’s former band Clor as "Retro-futurist, laboratory pop" awarding theie single eponymously titled 2005 album the No.1 spot in their '100 Greatest Albums You've Never Heard' shortly after their demise which was described as leaving a uniquely Clor-shaped hole in the all too generic world of guitar/electronic music.
