The Libertines - Barbarians


Since returning to the fray last year the former darlings of the ropck and roll world The Libertines have been drip feeding us tiny pieces of information – in fact most of what we know has come straight from the fans (classic Libertines). So with all it’s terrible sound we have made one of these drips; ‘Barbarians’, our Track of the Day.

Taken from their headline set at T in the Park, the boys in the band are at their swashbuckling best. With screaming verses from each of the band’s singers  and a chorus to swig your beer to the band are definitely hitting their stride.

Falling apart at the seams, as all the best Libertines tracks are, ‘Barbarians’ shows that the band aren’t quite done with the wilder side of life just yet and at heart they are as savage as anyone. It’s taken from their upcoming LP Anthems for Doomed Youth
