about

Released this January, Andrew Barrack's 7-track EP is called High Off Of Love. All written and performed by Barrack, the EP was recorded at Su Casa Studios. A compilation of his work for the past few years, the overarching theme of the whole EP is a laid-back vibe. From playing acoustically to writing and performing earnestly to incorporating surprise elements of jazz, Andrew's EP High Off Of Love is textbook "easy listening."

The title track "High Off Of Love" features Barrack's vocals in a crooning fashion, reminiscent of Adam Levine's in Maroon 5's 2007 album It Won't Be Soon Before Long. "High Off Of Love" is a delightful medley of all sorts of guitars and drums, even with some sax to add a jazz element to an already strongly-written track.

"85," a song whose opening includes recorded tracks of seagulls and crashing waves, both clearly an homage to Barrack's roots by the ocean. "85" is seeping with reggae influence, and Barrack's vocals fulfill the Jason Mraz/Jack Johnson quality imperative to relaxing, beach songs.

"Better Days" boasts a drastically more complex musical arrangement than the other tracks on High Off Of Love. Upbeat and with a faster tempo, "Better Days" is a song that borrows the iconic Stevie Wonder keyboard/synth sounds in "Superstition" and employs a large brass section. The guitar solo halfway through the song is expertly executed, the vocal build after is suspenseful, and the seemingly improvised synth solos toward the end add to the jazz elements of the track.

With 7 total tracks, High Off Of Love is a varied EP with a cultivated sound. Each song belongs in its place, and there's absolutely an audience that appreciates this kind of organized effort by creative musicians. Throughout the EP, Andrew Barrack's musical prowess and creative drive manifest in inspired work definitely worth listening to.

From groovy Jazz Pop to singable Reggae tunes about San Diego, High Off of Love is an invitation to get a glimpse of what I have to offer. After having these songs for five years and working on them at USC's Thornton School of Music, it was a blast to be able to hit the studio and make them come to life.
