In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape, we turn our attention to the brand new single from BARQ, ‘Optimus Prime’.
A far heavier and stylised offering than previously seen by BARQ, the group’s latest single ‘Optimus Prime’ has a spiky central sound that constantly jolts dynamically.
A frantically furious track from BARQ, the mirroring between the song’s lyrical themes, music and sci-fi neon music video make for an ambitious audio-visual experience that shows the Dublin band to be one that understands the importance of crafting their art through multi-media.
