neon brain and a black lit heart – dark indie pop
The smoky sounds of BARANY’s music hang like a melodious fog between your ears for some time after listening. It’s sultry and evocative with a deep rumbling undertow that complements the clean unpretentiousness of the lyrics. BARANYs vocals are supremely silky, slipping between the gentle and whispery and something a little grittier, riddled with harmonies and sweetly sad at times. These are heartfelt, soulful sounds that manage to balance a distant familiarity with an entirely fresh feel. Echoes of Portishead and Zero 7 are present but with the definite stamp of originality. Delicately wrought and skilfully layered, but holding onto a rawness that leaves this collection of songs feeling so dynamic.
