Barley Passable - 'Step Inside'

Australian duo brings the dancefloor to us with their infused blend of 70s disco and modern french pop in 'Step Inside'.

Think of Nile Rogers and Parcels coming together as they gleam through a chic, style indie-electronica that makes strides towards dance-floor anthems.

As they resonate about self-realisation, 'Step Inside' delves into the thoughts of learning from your experiences and allowing yourself to grow as a human being. As Barley Passable said: "Revisiting old memories of young love, the song reflects on how perspective can shape how you come out of any situation. Telling a story of how being caught up in the moment of a relationship that turns sour can become so consuming that you lose all perspective. It is only with time that you can truly let go, move forward and hope to learn that where you are now is better off because of your past experiences."


Even though 'Step Inside' was written when the pair, Kai Ollmann and Davy Brown came together back in 2017; the track subject matter seems too relevant in today's world. Emphasised by the cushion of the original synth-heavy arrangements, the duo unfolds a glittering-studded single fulfilled with the louche 'French Touch' of Daft Punk and the post-funk hooks to emulate the likes of Jungle.


As they continue to bring various genres to the table, Barley Passable make stylish pop to groove to that is leading to their debut EP, expected early 2021.
