London based musician George Barnett recently released the fourth single from his upcoming 2023 album. ‘Black Tank Top‘ sees George explore the anomalies of the human psyche:
“When I wrote Black Tank Top, I knew the subject matter was dark, but I wanted that darkness to come wrapped in a feeling of euphoria – because when we’re doing something bad it can be such a rush. At first the song had layers of guitar, but I ripped that up and started again. A lot of the hooks that sound like synths are me sampling my own voice. I wanted to experiment with styles that jarred a bit, mixing organic sounds and samples. It kind of reflected what I was feeling about the whole experience.”
George’s approach to music has been described as having an almost feral zeal, something that he explores in this single.
