Meet the new Barcelona. Now going the way of the producer, the Seattle three-piece have abandoned indie rock for more electronic pastures. Their revamped sound comes out in full force on new track “On Off.” The song comes off Know Love, the third part of their three-EP The Melodrama series. Fans of sexy synth-laced R&B jams à la How To Dress Well and James Blake will dig this one in particular. Stream “On Off” below.
Barcelona’s Know Love comes out March 18th. They also have a slew of tour dates coming up, including a few SXSW shows. Check them all our after the jump.
