The indie-rock duo, The Barettas are back with a new single, “Touché”. The track is an upbeat pump up song that’s been paired with a performance video, which you can check out below, and while you’re at it, find out more about the duo via our Five Questions With segment.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Katie Bulley and I’m the singer/guitar player of the band ‘The Barettas’.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Well, I usually bring the “skeleton” of a song to Lauren and if she likes it she’ll bring the “Frankenstein” to life with a different structure tempo, etc.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We have access to a haunted church in Hamilton that will welcome us anytime for a live stream. We did one a couple of months ago but as for the future, it’s unwritten.
Just by looking at us, you might be intimidated because we’re two beautiful women with instruments, and that’s a powerful combination, We like to play loud so hopefully, we’re inviting enough that people will start dancing. By the end of the set, I believe you’ll get an understanding of our heartbreak and love for rock and roll and you might feel like we’re your best friends, which we are if you connect to the music.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I would say “smoke-filled Baretta” the lyrics are kind of like the rolling stones “sympathy for the devil” but instead it’s that feeling after you shoot a gun.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I am insanely in love with Moist and they’re making such a huge comeback I’m so happy for them and their new album coming out “tarentino” (which is a coincidence because I describe the barettas music as a “soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film) I also like Sloan I met the singer Chris a couple of years ago and he was nice.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
