Barbarisms are a Stockholm trio, fronted by American songwriter Nicholas Faraone (voice/guitar) with Tom Skantze (guitar) and Robin Af Ekenstam (drums). The melodies of their 2014 self-titled debut were compared to Guided by Voices and Built to Spill, while the lyrics drew parallels with Destroyer and Silver Jews. Experimenting with rough and ready recording methods to capture the spontaneity of their process, the band developed what Uncut described as a "breezy" aesthetic that highlights the "conversational poetry" of the lyrics. "Pitched somewhere between the playful jangle of Jeffrey Lewis and the off-kilter wisdom of Guided By Voices...a captivating slice of lo-fi wonder that shines like a gem shimmering in a pool of darkness." --Loud & Quiet
