"...mystical, drama-laden female harmonies-led trip-pop is going to haunt your every midnight hour from now til summer I reckon." Nightshift Magazine
Oxford’s Barricane, described as modern folk with a femme fatale twist, is fronted by singer songwriters Rosy and Emily. Their often-haunting harmonic acrobatic vocals are the pivotal point around their often climactic, atmospheric stormy, energetic songs. Described by Nightshift Magazine as ‘Oxford’s best folk band’, they released their debut album ‘The Sky and Us’ during lockdown and followed it up in spring 2023 with their single ‘Saltwater’. In February 2024 they released a double single, Walking in the Dark and Night Out.
