July 2020: Update
Singer songwriter Barry Alexander King is back with his latest work "Break Down The Borders"
This follow up to his 2019 album "Leave It All Behind" continue’s with Barry’s trusted pop/rock format recorded & produced together with his US & UK Teams but has evolved into a much more modern sounding record. Lyrically the album explores much more intricate themes compared to it`s predecessor. The title track really strikes a chord in the fact that although we are all so racially, religiously & politically different, we are however in fact all prisoners on a very small planet. The song urges us to somehow accept these differences, but also wants us all to bury the hatchet and get along even if it is just a peaceful co-existence. The opening track co-written with his label partner Bavariarecords "I Don't Want You Anymore" starts off with a bang and has elements of ELO. Track 3 "Strange World" examines the paranoia of data protection and on track 4 "We Went To The Moon" Barry also has an ironic dig at the conspiracy theorists.
Generally speaking sound wise the whole album has a space / universal vibe and songs too match.
A worthy follow up and well worth a listen!
