Barrows fuses atmospheric and heavy music in the form of sprawling concept albums. The band creates entrancing, circling riffs and rhythms intercut with explosive peaks and brilliant subtleties.
"Red Giant", the sophomore album by Barrows is fittingly massive in thematic scope as it is in sonic heft. An album about the life of a star and what happens after it dies, the band depicts the stages of celestial death throughout the album's five epic tracks.
"Imprecari Island", the debut album by Barrows, is an intense musical jouney about a group of sailors who get shipwrecked on a cursed island. Their shipwreck, time on the island, and eventual escape is portrayed through the first eight tracks and is followed by the epic finale that takes place back out at sea, "Pirates".

They're two Best Friends; taking it to their limits and busting down those barriers. These Best Friends know no bounds as they catapult rockets into the stars; never knowing where they made it to or what they're doing in that mysterious place. Friends, maybe can help you out but these Best Friends will find a way in, and when they do you better watch out; because when Best Friends are there they're there for good and bad.
Look out for these two Best Friends because they're coming your way in a hurry! Save them a spot at the table and your hearts 'cause these Best Friends are cooking up "the word" and "the word" is good enough to eat. We can't tell you what "the word" is here but I can say without a doubt "the word" rhymes with Best Friends. Here they come, Best Friends.
Bubbly in a "loosing innocence" kind of way.
