The BARBE-Q-BARBIES are exactly what the world needs right now. In a sea of auto-tuned hard rock clones and sunset strip wannabes this Finnish band is here to set the record straight. Rock is, was, and always will be raw, dirty, and bad to the bone.
Their latest album “DRIVEN” is full of licks and hits harking back to the glory years of AC/DC, QOTSA, KISS, and MOTÖRHEAD, but with an added fuel injection of Helsinki attitude and femme fatale vocals that’ll blow your mind. With this the BARBIES have simultaneously created their own style and revitalized the genre.
Live, these girls really come into their own. Headline shows up and down the country and opening slots for NEW YORK DOLLS and WASP (to name just a few) have earned them a reputation as energetic, unpredictable, and uncompromising, but always fun and entertaining. For the BARBE-Q-BARBIES the party doesn’t stop. They live and breathe rock, punk, sleaze and trash..
