Following on from BARQ being one of 13 Irish acts in RTÉ 2FM’s 100 most played acts of 2016, Today FM’s PLAYIRISH Artist of The Week, as well as encouraging radio play on Newstalk, 8Radio, FM104, 98FM, Spin 103.8, Radio Nova, and many more – 2020 has gotten off to a bright start with ‘I’m Blaming You’ featuring on Audi’s current television and radio ad campaign, and previous singles ‘Not Touching (Can’t Get Mad)’ and ‘Thanks For The Night’ receiving over 600 plays on Irish radio since their release in February and April of this year.
For their upcoming single ‘Dive’ the combination of BARQ’s unique musical style with the skills of Diffusion Lab producer Marcin Ciszczon (Jafaris, Soulé, Mango x Mathman) has created a subtle but striking groove that brings to the fore the influence of modern R&B artists like Flying Lotus and Hiatus Kaiyote, with a nod to old school hip-hop in the style of J Dilla.
