Barnaby Keen releases new single, ‘Trust Me’

The track was released yesterday.

London artist Barnaby Keen has released his latest single, ‘Trust Me’.

A warming blend of psychedelia and soft folk, ‘Trust Me’ is filled with breezy instrumentals and rich vocal tones – an easy-listening slice of dreaminess, with a simple, yet beautiful arrangement.

Discussing the track, Keen says it began as a melody his partner would hum whilst he lived in Eastern Europe, saying “years later I was living in a [London] church with an old Hammond organ in it, and that melody came back to me. I took part of it and then wrote the song remembering her and our time together.”

Released via Peckham’s Plum Cuts label, ‘Trust Me’ has been released alongside a gorgeous music video, which perfectly encapsulates the feel of the song.

‘Trust Me’ is Keen’s second release of the year, after debuting ‘Lay Our Cards’ back in March.
