When you step into the sonic realm of fluorite kids, the professional moniker of Fluorite Marco Barron, you are transported to a realm of sound where classic pop melodies intersect with bleeding edge, lo-fi indie pop production. Here, grit and analog samples mark rhythm, providing a hypnotic mid-tempo texture to his avant-garde compositions. Expect a psychedelic vibe with an undercurrent of experimental edge. Barron’s musical journey began with his successful studio recording debut, single “Blonde Hair,” leading to his introduction to the music industry with 18 Carat Affair.
Vocal versatility is Barron’s strength, which is evident as his voice dances atop the raw industrial beats of tracks like “Walking the Cow” and “Critters Have Feelings.” When he goes into the spotlight, his voice turns haunting, echoing with deep and distant reverb across tracks, lending a cinematic quality to his music.
Barron is more than just an artist – he is a visionary who wants to change the musical landscape through his experimental yet wildly creative mixture of sounds. The discography he’s building—including tracks for meditation—aims to find and connect with his full audience. His commitment to authentic self-expression through his art draws listeners into a soulful journey, fostering a deeper connection with his music.
Born and nurtured by a love for Tim Burton films and a passion for the artistry of famed composer, Danny Elfman, Barron entered the music world at the tender age of two when he discovered drums. His passion for music was so strong that even as a child, his school classmates would find him turning a regular school desk into an impromptu drum set. Barron’s unquenchable thirst for beats inspired him to ask his teacher how to make a better beat. With that infectious spirit and a childhood spent recreating DVDs of visual arts associated with his music, Barron ventured into unknown territories, toying around with his friend’s equipment at a Guitar Center and later, while at Synthesis college.
Barron, a dedicated collector of cassettes and CDs, mirrors his eclectic and kaleidoscopic taste in his music style. A loyal patron of Rasputin’s record store and an ardent vinyl enthusiast, Barron’s creativity is as boundless as the records packed into his collection.
With thousands of streams on his original releases and a steadily growing fanbase, fluorite kids are not just an alternative pop project, but an entire immersive experience. You can experience it yourself on multiple platforms such as Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Instagram, and Linktree.
One of his most celebrated glories is the recently released album, ‘It’s Spooky in California,’ an 11-track delight that effectively encapsulates the unique psychedelic charm of the artist. The album starts with the remarkable ‘The Skeleton Bump’ and ends hypnotically with ‘Who Cleans the Cave? – Lake Tahoe Mix’, while “Gardens made by love” provides a dreamy middle act. Each track bears his signature flair for minimalistic composition, clean mixing, and a sublime balance of sonically disparate elements.
For future collaborations, Barron hopes to work with the likes of Martin Newell and Ariel Pink. In fact, a track with the latter is already in the pipeline. The fusion of Barron and Pink’s genius is a prospect that carries tremendous excitement for fans and the music industry alike. We eagerly anticipate the psychedelic creations ahead from the musical laboratory of fluorite kids. With Barron at the helm, one thing is certain – it will always be a wildly creative, genre-blending ride!
