Released: 11.11.22







Six years on from her cathartic debut, Breanna Barbara‘s swaggerful sophomore LP bounds onto the scene, perfused with simmering bluesy sensibilities and bolstered by vibrant psychedelic flourishes. Sonically immersive and tonally kaleidoscopic, Nothin’ But Time carves dazzling enclaves out of lushly retro-kissed soundbeds that recall those hazy 60s-ish pop nuggets that seem to crop up in damn-near every Tarantino-aping flick (no tea, no shade, mind).

Emotive, fun and fierce in equal measure, Barbara’s versatile lyricism remains as potent as ever. Swirltastic opener Diamond Light mulls the intricate synergy between memory and hindsight, whilst the rollicking title track keenly evokes the innate melancholia of existential rumination. Elsewhere, Me Too deftly dissects patriarchal malevolence with searing precision. Intuitively resonant and utterly beguiling.
