Petite Meller’s new single Barbaric is now streaming online and it’s bloody good: 

Petite Meller has premiered her new single Barbaric on Spotify, and made the track available to preorder on iTunes. 

An interview with the singer for Noisey in May revealed that the track “explores the plight of Daniel Paul Schreber, a 19th century judge whose recounted battles with mental illness had a tremendous influence on Freud and the development of psychoanalysis. The crux of the issue was that Freud believed Schreber’s symptoms and eventual insanity stemmed from his repressed sexuality.

So there’s that then.

It’s also irresistibly catchy, with Petite’s kooky, airtight vocals punching effortlessly over an increasingly layered backdrop of thumping piano punches and scorching sax breaks. No wonder then that Barbaric was this week named Hottest Record by Huw Stephens, when he was sitting in for Annie Mac on her Radio 1 show. 

It follows the release of Baby Love which reached #30 on the UK singles chart in July, but is also brilliant. 

Barbaric is on iTunes here and you can stream it via Spotify below.
