Following on from BARQ being one of 13 Irish acts in RTE2FM’s 100 most played acts of 2016, TodayFM’s PLAYIRISH Artist of The Week, as well as encouraging radio play on Newstalk, 8Radio, FM104, 98FM, Spin 103.8, Radio Nova, and many more – 2020 has gotten off to a bright start with ‘I’m Blaming You’ featuring on a television and radio campaign for Audi, and ‘Not Touching (Can’t Get Mad)’, ‘Thanks For The Night’, and ‘Dive’ receiving over 1,000 plays on Irish radio since their release earlier this year.
For their upcoming single ‘The Table’ the combination of BARQ’s unique musical style with the skills of Diffusion Lab producer Marcin Ciszczon (Jafaris, Soulé, Mango x Mathman) has created a subtle but striking groove that brings to the fore the influence of modern R&B artists like The Internet and Hiatus Kaiyote, with a nod to old school hip-hop in the style of J Dilla.
“We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all the support over the last few years. With so much great music in the world and particularly in this country, it always gave us a giddy thrill whenever anybody took the time and effort to play our songs, come to a gig, write about our music, book us for a show….the list goes on. We are extremely grateful. This single will be our final release as a group.
Thank you and goodbye from BARQ!“
