It's not every day that a new artist slams on the scene with an identity strong enough to turn heads. Starting off on with a solid footing, Eagles & Butterflies, aka Chris Barratt, has done just that.
Barratt's melodies are hard to ignore, they have a transformative effect -- reshaping an otherwise minimal track into a massively expansive feeling. Barratt keeps other common denominators around as well. Like a proper tag, his jet-like transitions and airy vocals find themselves into almost every production. Barratt's a beacon in the storm of an already over-saturated music industry; he keeps it bright and recognizable -- bringing you back to a place you know and love.
Sample the variety of flavors off Bedrock's latest compilation Underground Sound of Miami Series 2 album here -- an altogether great listen; Barratt standing out strong with "Pharaoh" and "Sphinx."
In light of Indie Shuffle's downtempo sounds of Sunday, Eagles & Butterflies offers a chilled out alternative to "Pharoah," as if to say he's got plenty of surprises up his sleeve. It's obvious Barratt isn't going anywhere and that wherever he's going, he's getting there fast, so keep up with his progress via SoundCloud or find him on Facebook. Enjoy!
