Barbudo, British ‘Nu-eyed funk’ group, hailing from the south coast town of Havant, Portsmouth. Fusing elements of old-school funk, psych rock and smooth R&B, brothers Ben and Harry Stanworth, along with Elliot Salter have just released their most recent single, Secret Admirer, with more on the horizon.

The guys spoke with The Fountain about what we can look forward to from them as well as their favourite gig at The Lexington.

TF: A new single release, you must be ecstatic?

We are thrilled to get it out just in time for summer. We’ve been working on it for a while so it’s nice to finally have it out there.

TF: What type of reception have you had so far to Secret Admirer?

People seem to be liking it and we are getting a lot of positive feedback. It’s definitely our strongest release to date and I think most people agree.

TF: And we are to expect more from you later in the year?

We have a video for Secret Admirer coming out soon. We also have a few more singles lined up plus a vinyl release later in the year, so keep your eyes peeled!

TF: Are you going to be promoting this with a tour, are we likely to see you play live soon?

We have a few shows lined up. We are playing at the Folklore in Hackney 29th May and the Portsmouth bandstand 16th June. We have a few more dates that haven’t been announced yet but will all be posted on our socials soon.

TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?

Our favourite gig to date probably was supporting Club Kuru at The Lexington. It was a sold out show and the sound was great. Can’t ask for much more!
