about

Happy To Be Here (Ext) is Barrie’s new, four song EP, which marks the end to the Happy To Be Here chapter. The release includes two new singles that were tracked primarily during the album sessions. “Drag” is perhaps the most encompassing track Barrie Lindsay has crafted to date, with lush harmonies that drive home the chorus’ infectious hook. “Human Nature” is pure vibe, meandering between bubbling synths and an RnB beat over Barrie's subtle, yet sultry storytelling. The two Alt versions of album favorites “Clovers” & “Chinatown" highlight Barrie’s versatile musicianship, featuring thoughtful layers of cello & trumpet that she played and recorded in her New York apartment.

Happy To Be Here (Ext) is out October 18, 2019 via Winspear.

Track Name: Drag
I never was so good before
I never was so good before

I’m gonna be a drag
I think I’m gonna find you later
I’m gonna be a drag
I’m gonna cross the water

She’s got you so going
You don’t realize it
She’s got you so going
Don’t know if you’ll find it

I’m gonna be a drag
I think I’m gonna find you later
I’m gonna be a drag
I’m gonna cross the water

I’m on your wifi two blocks away
You never came up with a better name

I’m gonna be a drag (gonna a be a drag)
I think I’m gonna find you later (find you later)
I’m gonna be a drag (gonna a be a drag)
I’m gonna cross the water
Track Name: Clovers (Alt)
I know when to go
I know when to go
Take my time down the hall, with my eyes up on the wall
I hear my shoes and I hear my sigh, I watch myself walk out from the light

Clovers in my eyes, the way the light falls on the bus on the way home
Clovers in my eyes, trying to stay awake, trying to stay away

Lying down on the grass, clover bed under my back
Close my eyes in the middle of the day, close my eyes and it feels just the same

Clovers in my eyes, the way the light falls on the bus on the way home
Clovers in my eyes, trying to stay awake, trying to stay away

Back seat of the last bus, the city in a blackout

Clovers in my eyes, the way the light falls on the bus on the way home
Clovers in my eyes, trying to stay awake, trying to stay away
Track Name: Chinatown (Alt)
You give some and you take a little
It works out sometimes better than others
Oh never got my chance to say it
Oh but I can be so cruel

Oh the light in Chinatown tonight
Those are weaker days
When I talk to you, when I say your name
I can’t tell if I fell back asleep
Those were weaker days, when I talked to you

Sitting on a sink in the boys room
Ducking their head to get their hair cut
Nothing on the neck, nothing on the side
It comes off so easy

Oh the light in Chinatown tonight
Those were weaker days
When I talked to you, when I say your name
I can’t tell if I fell back asleep
Those were weaker days, when I talked to you
