Sky Barkers – Beholden To None
Sky Barkers is an indie trio based in coastal West Wales. It is comprised of Joanna MacGregor Messore, Dan Messore and Matt Brown. They make groove based, hook heavy, vocal laden music – lyrically connective and energy driven, rooted in song-writing but with a wonky edge.
‘Beholden to None’ is their first single as a trio and speaks to the new sound that is emerging. “This is a song that invites you into one of my regular day dreams – what would life be like if I was a wanderer, a rover, a free soul flitting from town to countryside, sleeping in nooks of the earth and following old paths? Of course, it’s is a romanticized version of what it would actually be like to live that way – its more about that deep, simple urge to just get up and walk off.
To be answerable to no one, leave no forwarding address – to know that no governing body or co-operate nonsense can find you. To be elusive, beholden to none but the night sky”.
