"High-voltage charm from a '50s-doo-wop-girl-group-style trio from Seoul could have been gimmicky, but wasn't. Their voices were breathtaking, and their homage sincere. " - NPR
"Modeled on 1950s American girl groups, South Korean trio The Barberettes could easily have tipped over into gimmicky, but they’re sincere artists. “When It’s Rainin’“ was the first track I heard and I love how it turns on a dime from doo-wop harmonizing to rockabilly swing to a gospel-tinged breakdown. Perfect for clapping and stomping away sore feet and minimal sleep." - Bitch Magazine
This time-traveling girl group, the Barberettes, sings distinctive ‘50s and ‘60s Doo-wop and Korean retro music. Their rich style ranges from swing to rock 'n' roll which takes us to the sentimental moment of the ‘50s.
The Barberettes have performed internationally throughout Canada, the US, Japan, Hong Kong, France, the UK, and Australia. The group was nominated for three awards at the 2015 Korean Music Awards (Best Pop Album, Best Pop Song, Rookie of the Year) and received press accolades from appearances at festivals like SXSW and Midem last year.
After their upcoming gigs in North America this May, they'll be traveling back to the UK to perform at The Great Escape festival.
