The indie-rock comes somewhere in between. You’ll notice some classic indie rock maneuvers along the way, but these maneuvers are so subtle. This style suits the group like a charm, and that’s hearable in their ear-appealing tunes. You may stumble upon some elements of folk-rock as well.
Barking Poets solely rely upon powerful chord progressions, melodies, harmonies, themes, and simplistic but effective solos. Powerful low-end tones are punching right from beneath and support both guitars throughout the entire material. The rhythm section delivers loads of dynamics through thoughtfully assembled beats, accentuations, and fills. Barking Poets are so good at emulating late seventies punk rock sound. The group will almost instantly throw you into the golden days of classic punk rock. If you’re into that type of sound, then Barking Poets will be right up your alley.
