At the end of a hot July Lay down the evening sun In the heart, off the mainland On the wrong side of Canada I can tell, I can hear your thoughts For miles and miles across And if I listen close enough They’re not about me at all ‘Round and around to the sound of the radio Caught in a turn ‘till I learn how to let you go There are things that I’d like to change I wanna start again I could wait for the glass to break Pray for a catalyst ‘Cause the ghost in me ought to find who I belong to Hollowness I can’t leave behind I’m always in love with you ‘Round and around to sound of the radio Caught in a turn ‘till I learn how to let you go There was a line drawn thru our love Without any space between But this circle is my own Your line doesn’t end with me


Immersed in a gentle haze, "Roller Disco" spins like the intrinsic soundtrack to a sentimental memory. Finding its musical footing somewhere along the paths carved out by Harry Nilsson, Burt Bacharach, and Emmylou Harris, the song sways with a softly strummed nylon guitar guided by perfect restraint. Be it a brief and breathy flute run, the soft touch of a mallet, or an old familiar slide, "Roller Disco" is orchestrated with perfect, stirring delicacy. All the while, Barry's signature "sweet and addictive" vocals dispatch lyrics ingrained with salt water wisdom and stirring storytelling.

"Barry has an unsettling ability to capture the warmth of an evening (possibly seaside) while slowly cracking into that cozy façade with the tap-tap of insistent heartbreak." - CBC Music

"...gentle yet powerful." - SLAM Magazine Germany
