The Hook mixtape is compiled through a series of music related questions. Each artist who fills it out can answer as many or as few of the questions as they wish, and elaborate on their choices, or let them speak for themselves.
Brooklyn, New York
Barrie Lindsay (vocals, guitar), Spurge Carter (keys), Dom Apa (drums), Noah Prebish (guitar, synth), and Sabine Holler (bass)
Named after singer Barrie Lindsay, Barrie was formed in Brooklyn by members from all over the globe - drummer Dom was previously in London based Is Tropical, and Sabine came to Brooklyn from Brazil, via Berlin.
“listening brings me very viscerally back to awkward high school dances: the synths shimmer like disco ball lights reflecting off foil decorations, and the hazy vocals cast a romantic film over everything. ” - The Fader

The soundtrack to your last holiday
The last holiday I went on was tour, and I kept staring out the window listening to Siren 042 by Lala Lala and WHY? on a loop, it's so beautiful
A song which has changed your mind
That’s a cool question… I think all songs have shaped my mind in one way or another. For whatever reason the one that’s coming up now is the Chainsmokers, that song Closer. It’s super catchy. But a few years ago I was in LA trying to decide if I should move there, and that song was everywhere. When I got home it came on and I realized it epitomized how I felt about LA and I suddenly knew I wasn’t moving there. But more important, Reckoner changed my mind about Radiohead -- that one was my way in.
A song which makes you cry
I Remember by Molly Drake, it's so pure.
A song which gives you goosebumps
Plays John Cassavetes Pt. 2 by Ekkehard Ehlers.

Had Ten Dollaz by Cherry Glazerr lately!

A gig you’ll never forget
I usually like really small shows, but seeing Paul McCartney was a big deal
An album you know by heart
I think most Beatles albums minus a couple songs (fuck Yer Blues)
A cover which is better than the original
Okay Kaya released a really pretty cover of Believe by Cher, I'm really into that one.
A song you first heard on a film soundtrack
Very many but the one that’s coming up right now is Crash by the Primitives from Dumb and Dumber??? Also The Sun by Kim Jung Mi from The Double
