Breanna Barbara Announces New Album with a Charming New Video

Fierce psych rocker Breanna Barbara announced her next record today, Nothin’ But Time, by releasing an infectiously catchy, retro-kissed new single, “Diamond Light.”

The album, which will be released on Fuzz Club Records on November 11, features Barbara and friends (like The Dead Weather’s Jack Lawrence and Champagne Superchillin’s Charles Garmendia and Ben Trimble) whipping up the headiest brew of acid garage rock this side of Night Beats.

With surf guitars, crashing drums and gale force vocals, Barbara and crew absolutely ignite with a confident swagger and a psychedelic edge. This is very evident on the album’s lead single, “Diamond Light,” which takes the structures of blues rock and hazy 60s pop nuggets and injects them with new life.

The song erupts with spooky guitar solos, a heavy grooving beat and Barbara’s incandescent voice, which reverberates endlessly, as if she’s singing from deep within a cavernous mine shaft. Check out “Diamond Light’s” endearingly fun music video below:

The DNA of everything from The Crystals to The Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Castaways can be traced within this addictive tune, but Barbara fills the song with enough of her own personal touches (especially the lyrics) to keep it fresh and truly hers.
