BARQ are a high energy four-piece, shoving groove into the belly of the rock-beast and creating agrosoul. This is music to dance dangerously to. In March 2016, BARQ released their debut single “Gentle Kind of Lies” to critical acclaim and a surge of media attention. The track was picked up by Spotify’s new music playlist in both the UK and Brazil. Since then, BARQ have been one of the most talked about bands in Ireland. Lead singer, Jess Kav, featured on the front cover of Ireland's premier music magazine, Hot Press, and BARQ were included in The Irish Times "50 People to watch in 2017".
