Underworld-Barbara Barbara,We face a shining future
Released: March 18, 2016
With a vibe similar to “Talking Heads”, Underworld releases the album, Barbara Barbara, We face a shining future after a six year hiatus. The album is a testament to their electronic nature. The British band, consisting of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, combine electronic music with deep bass lines, rhythmic percussion and pretty average vocals.
But with that being said, they do provide a underlying haunting tone akin to their name “Underworld” along with that, there are areas that precipitate a spacey and astronomical view akin to the album title, “We face a shining future”. Though not particularly my style of music, there is something very “new wave” or “new age” about this band. You can definitely appreciate the genius that goes behind making this type of music as well as making this album. After a six year hiatus, I think this album is a valiant effort in getting back into the music world and I am curious as to what else to have in their sleeve and has up next when it comes to live performances, more music and future albums.
