Canadian singer-songwriter Liam Barrack has been produced by JUNO-Award nominees like Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, MONOWHALES) and is dedicated to his work as a musician, crafting beguiling indie pop songs which chart the ups and downs of his life so far.

His new EP, Sines and Symptoms, was recorded at Echoplant in Vancouver with Worsley, featuring contemplative and self critical songwriting with an earnest pop sensibility.

“Memories,” taken from the EP, reflects on Barrack’s first year of university which was mostly spent in an intoxicated state.

“The song sounds like it’s directed to a person, but if you listen to the lyrics carefully, you can tell I’m actually speaking to the substances in a personified manner,” Barrack explains.

Playful guitar and synths create a laidback verse juxtaposed by the upbeat chorus where Barrack has moments of clarity, ones which he says “ultimately slipped away again.”
