Joe Pope – ‘Barricade’ (feat. Luna Keller)
Musician Joe Pope has teamed up with Luna Keller on their superb latest single, ‘Barricade’. It is an Americana release that is filled with heart.
A warm and enticing opening greets the listener. The layered instrumentation fills the sonic spectrum and lays the solid foundations for the soulful vocals to shine.
We adore the unexpected chordal progressions, which are unpredictable and keep the audience on their toes. The chorus is catchy and stays with the listener long after the music has ended.
In addition, the mix, master and production of ‘Barricade’ are brilliant. Everything has it’s own space in the mix, and a gracious tone has been achieved. One thing is for sure; ‘Barricade’ is a classic song in the making.
The duo say about the release, “‘Barricade’ is about the barriers we’ve put up over the past year, both because of the COVID pandemic as well as the political turmoil in the US.”
They continue, “It urges us to ‘hold on’ and not to give up on staying vigilant yet at the same time holding on to the ones we love, and hints towards a reconciliation for the nation and the world, and the eventual breaking down of the barricades that stand in the way of us finding one another once again.”
We hope this is the first of many collaborations between Joe Pope and Luna Keller. Together, they are making innovative and driving music that needs to be heard.
So make sure you add ‘Barricade’ to your playlist this weekend. It is a single that needs to be heard to be fully appreciated, and we look forward to hearing what they will do next.
