One of the most anticipated releases of the year has to be the Aussie’s second album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, out 18th May, the follow up to her massively acclaimed debut Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Expect more of her highly witty, occasionally rambling sing-song story telling, allied to a propulsive new wave/punk guitar-led sound. Also expect a little more introspection and seriousness as she tackles misogyny, self-doubt and more, as can be heard on the first release from the album, ‘Nameless, Faceless’.
Meanwhile, she is playing guitar in wife Jen Cloher’s band, who land in Brighton on Saturday 17th February. Barnett will then set out on tour in support of the new album, including a date at All Points East festival, 3rd June.
